Women need twice as many public washrooms as men, new report says

A new U.K. report argued there should be two female toilets to every male one, adding the lack of public toilets is a threat to women’s health and equality.

The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) report said women need more toilets because “of time-consuming factors related to clothing, menstruation and anatomical differences.”

The report’s authors pointed to “potty parity” — which is defined as equal speed of access to public restrooms — legislation that exists in certain places in the U.S. that recommends a 2:1 toilet ratio in favour of women.

Currently, in the U.K., the standard is 1:1.
