On Tuesday, two anonymous women filed a lawsuit against Uber on behalf of individuals who have experienced "rape, sexual assault, physical violence, and gender-motivated harassment" by Uber drivers. The lawsuit states that both women were sexually assaulted by their Uber drivers, and accuses Uber of creating a system that fails at both preventing and handling these incidents of sexual violence.

Uber announced on Sunday that it's taking new steps toward preventing sexual assault and domestic violence, starting with a $US5 million ($6.5 million) donation to its partners - Raliance, National Network to End Domestic Violence, No More, Women of Color Network, Casa de Esperanza, A Call to Men, and The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs - along with an employee training program and in-app messaging to educate riders and drivers.
