World Toilet Day chance to fight sanitation indignities women face – activist Helen Pankhurst
Helen Pankhurst, a member of charity WaterAid’s board of trustees, spoke at a World Toilet Day event at London’s Anthologist restaurant.
The “1 in 3 women event” marked the day by drawing attention to the fact that there are 1.25 billion women in the world who have nowhere safe to go to the toilet.
Globally, 2.5 billion people do not have access to adequate sanitation.
