Tiffany Girl: A Novel - Deeanne Gist

Reeve has learned about "bustle pinchers," men who sexually harass women on streetcars, and he's horrified. He now rides with Flossie to work every day, even though it's a different streetcar than the one he'd need to take to work, to see to it that no one bothers her.


For some reason all of this reminded me of a contemporary-set book I read a while back, where the female main character bemoaned feminism. Something to the effect of "Sometimes a woman just wants to be sexually harassed! Is that so bad?" I want to throw this book at that author.
