Pregnant Woman Awards Man With A Trophy After Giving Her His Subway Seat

Yvonne Lin was sick of men not offering a pregnant woman a seat on the subway. She decided to try a social experiment and made a trophy that she planned to award to the first man that gave up his seat for her.

"I was getting no seats from men [which gave me the idea of the trophy]...I thought, 'You know what, it's worth it to carry it. If I finally get a seat from a guy then I have to celebrate this some way and make sure he knows he’s appreciated. [When a guy finally earned the award] He looked up at me and looked super startled and embarrassed and he immediately stood up and said, 'Please take this seat, I just noticed,'" Lin said.

I'm about 8ish months preggers (again) and I look it. I've been gradually coming to the conclusion that men suck. I didn't get a single subway seat offered to me by a man throughout my first pregnancy. So for the second pregnancy, I had this made and I've been carrying it around everyday - till last Friday. This guy is the winner! #subway #nyc #pregnant #socialexperiment
