Protest over ladies’ loos

The Week - Junior - - Around The World -

On 23 Septem­ber, women in cities across the Nether­lands protested against the lack of ladies’ pub­lic toi­lets. In Am­s­ter­dam, there are 35 pub­lic uri­nals for men across the city, but only three pub­lic loos for ladies. The protests were trig­gered when a judge fined a lady for uri­nat­ing in a side street, af­ter she was un­able to find any­where to go to the toi­let. Over 2,600 peo­ple have signed a pe­ti­tion to com­plain.
