The discussions about hotel safety recently have centered on what happened in a suite at the Sofitel in New York between Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, and a hotel maid.
But business travelers can fall victim to attacks, too, by intruders, hotel staff, even other guests. Most often, the victims are women.
Paxton Quigley, a women’s safety consultant in New York and author of “Not an Easy Target” (Fireside, 1995), said most women business travelers were “just beginning to learn how unsafe they can be, especially in airports and planes, hotels, walking on streets in cities that they don’t know and in convention settings.” Conventions, she said, leave women particularly vulnerable because “they’re wearing name badges and are telling people where they are staying.”
