Parking spots just for women? South Korea is trying it out in hopes of being more "female-friendly."

Government officials unveiled the wider, longer parking spaces in Seoul.

Each are painted pink and feature the outline of a woman in a miniskirt in the middle, according to NBC News.

Many are also closer to elevators.

It's not yet known if men will be fined for parking in the spots.

The initiative is part of a nearly $700 million push to make Seoul more "female-friendly" over the next four years. Other projects include 7,000 new women-only toilets and resurfacing some sidewalks with a squishy material to help with high heels, according to the Korea Times.
