No straddling motorcycles, please!


Indonesia's northwestern province Aceh has introduced a controversial new law banning women from sitting on motorcycles with their legs apart. Activists are calling for a reversal of the ban.

Despite opposition from human rights activist, authorities in Aceh's city administration of Lhokseumawe decided to release a law banning women from straddling motorbikes earlier this week.
