Women need twice as many public toilets as men, say health experts

Toilet provisions should be increased across the country, so that there are two female toilets to every male one, according to health experts.

The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) has recommended new laws surrounding the state of public facilities, suggesting the UK follows in the footsteps of some parts of the US and Canada where a two-to-one ratio is mandated to address the gender imbalance in toilet queue times.

The report, which is titled “Taking the P***”, also says more unisex facilities are needed to ensure equality of access and better provision for transgender individuals.

According to the data, 74 % of the 2,089 people interviewed said that there are not enough public toilets in their area.
