NEW YORK -- A controversial new ride-sharing service is for females only.

"Chariot for Women" is an Uber-like service, but it only hires female drivers and will only pick up women or boys 13 and under.

It's intended to help female passengers feel safe, but the service is being criticized as sexist and discriminatory.

Chariot for Women launches nationwide April 19th.
