Uber wants to hire 1 million women as drivers
Uber is looking for a few good women — well, a lot of them, actually.
The online ride service wants to hire a million women drivers over the next five years.
Uber has faced criticism that it doesn’t do enough to protect its female passengers from harassment or even assault.
Letting them ask specifically for a woman driver may help alleviate that concern; but finding enough women who want to be driver may be a challenge.
Only 2% of American taxi drivers are women.
