This is from there app on the Google play store. Driver App is the same... Its the past that says "only".

*****Calling All Women****** Have you ever wanted to drive for a rideshare service but the thought left you feeling insecure? Chariot For Women will help resolve those feelings. Chariot For Women is a rideshare club driven by women for women and children only.
Had not seen the app. Was just reading the interview that was posted here. I didn't realize it was actually up and running.

:: sigh :: Women actually have more legal rights than men do. Truth be told and now they want the right to start businesses that discriminate against men; citing fear. :: sigh :: So, women are allowed to be in fear of men. But, men can't be allowed to be in fear of women? How is this equal?

Keep pushing that feminist envelope ladies and the men will eventually start pushing back.

Legal rights that women have and men don't (as told by a woman)

We're talking
H O M O N Y M S and Spelling ! It's really
a matter of Awareness. Bare or bear ?
Wait or weight ? When in doubt, look
it up in a $1 "Pocket" Dictionary..."Spell-

on "Stationery", while you're sitting
"Stationary". I "want" to enlighten you,
as is my "wont" [pronounced "want"].

Bison: That helped me. How'bout you ?

I am highly insulted by the idea that as a woman passenger, I am automatically interested in services like 'beauty makeovers along my route'.

I'm also insulted by the idea that I, as a woman driver, am 'not safe' driving men around. I am perfectly capable of driving both men and woman around - I do not need some company to protect me from male passengers.

It's obvious to me that some guy thought this would be a great idea but manages to insult women in the process.

This is a classic example of benevolent sexism - it is sexism all dressed up in 'protecting women' bullsh*t'.

Thanks but no thanks.

Actually, when it comes to Ubering men and women should be more afraid of men. Men commit most of the violent crimes, including murder. But when it comes to sexual assaults women are more likely to be victims. When men ARE victims of sexual assault, it's usually also by men.

This is not bashing, it's simple fact. Regardless of your sex, you are statistically much safer with a female pax OR driver than a male.

All of you are forgetting one important fact (and how do you think we have rights as drivers when Uber has completely proved that we are indiscriminate bugs to be scraped off the bottom of their shoes????): we are not EMPLOYEES of this company. We are INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS. I am sure that this company already looked into the legal ramifications of all of this and just based themselves off the Uber experience- don't hire people- bring on independent contractors, who are NOT considered employees, and therefore NOT subject to this whole discrimination stuff. All of you negative nancys can go whine all day long and waste your money on lawsuits and beat your heads against your car doors all day long, but at the end of the day, fuber gave them all they needed to operate without fear that their business plan will be disrupted by anyone. Now, they also elect for drivers to have taxes taken out, but they are still considered independent contractors. This company will survive, and it will do well. I've spoken to many of my female passengers lately, and they have said they preferred female drivers. Not to say that male drivers are all evil penis driven rapists, but the stories they relayed to me: being hit on by male drivers (in their opinion), being driven in circles or taken the long way to work and feeling too intimidated to say anything, middle school and high school girls being hit on by drivers and not knowing who they can talk to to report it, stories from male drivers talking about how they got the women's phone numbers, or had sex with them, etc. Can you really blame someone for coming up with a company like this?

Now, the whole thing about having your mani/pedi or makeup consultation in the car? That's just straight up stupid. It's beyond stupid. It's "stoopid".

I Hope you guys sue Hooters, Winghouse and Tilted Kilt while you're at it. A lot of women refuse to ride with male uber or Lyft drivers for fear of safety. I know I don't after a certain time. Nothing that a male predator loves more than being isolated with a vulnerable woman in the back of their car. How many news stories have you heard where a female uber or Lyft driver was doing something nefarious? Don't worry, I'll wait. There is nothing wrong with this. Get over yourselves.
Your point is built on the fallacy that male rideshare drivers are somehow more nefarious due to the fact that they are a rideshare driver. That's nonsense propagated by the media. A BAD Uber driver story is extremely entertaining, but buying into the wide brush stroke is ludicrous. There are criminally minded men and women in all walks of life, in all professions.

Jody Arias worked for LegalShield. How many news stories have you heard where a male LegalShield work-from-home salesperson was doing something nefarious?

"I find that those men who are personally most polite to women, who call them angels and all that, cherish in secret the greatest contempt for them."

"No one is more arrogant toward women, more aggressive or scornful, than the man who is anxious about his virility."

I actually think it's a good idea. Unfortunately. I'd prefer the women I know to get rides from women. And for the women drivers I know to give rides to women rather than all the scary pax I get.
I hear ya...

I had some free ride money from Lyft and I took a Lyft yesterday for some coffee. (To and from Dunkin about 2 miles round trip +12 minutes) The driver did a nice job even waited outside the car to make sure I saw him. But the only thing was his ride. The car was ok I guess/a bit odd, the rear speaker was missing a cover, no cup holders in the back for my coffee (Stop rolling your eyes at me :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:) Even though it was clean inside the car made me feel like it was dirty. I don't know the car wasn't too old 2010. Just wasn't well kept in the inside. The driver was nice, but how he was dress and he look like he just woke up, he did seem creepy. That was the first reaction, but after talking to him that went away. If he just sat there and said nothing I can see how that would be creepy for anyone. People have to understand 99% of drivers are safe people to take rides with. Just like in the world, it's the 1% that make the world unsafe for anyone. It's when companies safe that make the claim that men make rideshares unsafe for women both riders and drivers. I am one of those drivers, I take offense to that. This is why I have a problem with Chariot for Women. :confused:

(Total cost of the trip was $8 and I tipped $2.... so $5.00 + $2 tip for the driver. But Lyft had a guarantee yesterday during that time of $36 an hr.) So he got paid...
