The incident has seen the country united in condemning the misbehaving men, who humiliated the girls for wearing mini-skirts.

Speaking to Sowetan yesterday, the 22-year-old University of South Africa computer science student said she used to think taxi ranks were "safe" places for women.

"All along I was wrong to think that at the taxi rank there are men who will protect girls," she said.

"I am Miss lovely Legs, but I am forbidden to show the very legs that have been judged to be sexy."

Sono, who beat several other girls a few weeks ago to snatch this title, said that Miss Lovely Legs was about giving a voice to women.

"It actually has less to do with legs and more with giving a voice to women, and that is the role I am going to play.

"I won because of my confidence and my intellect."
