We all need to pee. But for some people, this is easier said than done.
According to the Human Rights Commission’s Report on Sexual Assault on Campus, 45% of trans and gender diverse students had been sexually harassed in a university setting, which is much higher than their cisgender counterparts.
A lot of this harassment occurs in gendered spaces like bathrooms, which is why gender-neutral bathrooms are such an important resource for students who need them.
Gender-neutral bathrooms are bathrooms that can be used by all genders. Rather than being labelled as “male” or “female”, they may say “all gender” or “unisex”. Think of the toilet in your house – people of all genders use it. Behold, your very own gender-neutral bathroom!
