Hitch, China and Hong Kong’s popular ride-hailing firm is being accused for discriminating women. The company is implementing a controversial service of banning females from using the service late at night. This is due to the killings of two female passengers while they grabbed a car during late night hours. The company says that in order to ensure passenger safety, it will only let female customers book rides until 8 pm, while males can use this app till 11 pm; though it was the male drivers who killed the female passengers. The company quickly repealed this regulation after a massive push back from Chinese females.
