Interesting piece Rosie, when I first started using the NY subway 23 years ago the grope of choice was for the man to carry a large envelope which he would hold between him and you, when you looked down as you realised someone was groping you they would turn their hand back as if they were holding the package. The first couple of times I thought it was my mistake, once I realised it wasn't I purchased a large hat pin which I kept pinned to the collar of my coat and used liberally, needless to say no one answered back. I also had my breasts grabbed once when the lights in the carriage went off very briefly. Long Long overdue for something to be done about this - 23 years on and the same old problems!
