World Toilet Day

19 November 2012

Today is World Toilet Day. Across the world, 1 in 3 women risk shame, disease, harassment and even attack because they have nowhere safe to go to the toilet. That’s 1.25 billion women – daughters, sisters, mothers, grandmothers.

Our Honorary Co-President Glenys Kinnock has written a joint article for the Huffington Post – read it here. And Labour & Co-operative MP Jim Dobbin has written this article for Politics Home in his role as Co-Chair of the APPG for Child Health and Vaccine Preventable Diseases.

Everyone can help support those women across the world living without safe toilets by signing WaterAid’s pledge that everyone should have somewhere safe to go to the toilet at wateraid.org/1in3.
