An uneducated man was standing in the bus entry door (foot board) which is exclusively meant for women passengers to board into the bus. (Men have to board the bus through another entry door which is located in the rear part of the bus) Women were experiencing difficulty in getting past him and boarding the pass. What to call such obstruction put up by a person? Obstruction or blockage or barrier….?

    Verbally "blocking" works as well: He was blocking the woman's door/entry. There's also "to impede."

    As a noun though, you're probably best served by 'obstruction'
