Rav Shlomo Zalman Aurebach On Sitting Next To A Lady On a Bus
Rav Shlomo Zalman was once sitting with someone on a crowded city bus when a woman got onto the bus and couldn't find a place to sit. Rav Sholmo Zalman turned to the younger person sitting next to him and told him that either he should get up and give her his seat or Rav Shlomo Zalman will give up his seat. The younger fellow got up and Rav Sholmo Zalman sat next to the women without any hesitation.
Interestingly Rav Shlomo Zalman once commented to someone (in accordance with the gemara Eruvin 18b) that it is far better to sit next to a woman that sit behind a women. (V'Aleihu Lo Yibol 2:EH:9)
