While this may seem strange, even odd to western beliefs, 'we' do plenty of things that they find abhorrent and in any case, far from demeaning women, it's actually the opposite- it's done out of respect for women.
Perhaps the males could try not behaving in such a way as to make women prefer separate train cars for their safety... that would seem to be a lot more respectful of women.Same goes for women only train compartments (used in Muslim countries).
Women prefer to travel this way as they feel safer.
