‘Women’s Room Sign’

Here’s an interesting little piece of potty humor that doesn’t involve having a dirty mind.
There’s a lack of women’s restrooms in our government buildings. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee seek to end this potty drought by introducing the “Potty Parity Act” bill today. The bill requires federal buildings of the future and buildings leased by the government to have a 1:1 ratio of men’s to women’s restrooms.
The bill’s lead sponsor, Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.) told WaPo that a lack of restrooms in our government buildings has become an issue because these buildings were constructed long before masses of women entered the federal workforce. According to Towns, some women have even suffered work-related problems and been fired as a result of their inability to take the time necessary to address health or medical concerns.
The addition of more women’s restrooms would aid the effort to help halt these uncessary women’s health concerns in the federal workplace.
The American Restroom Association has a more nuance’d look at the problem on their ‘Potty Parity’ legislative support page.
