Open defecation in white suburbia: WaterAid’s World Toilet Day video

A viral video showing a “woman risking her dignity and safety trying to find somewhere to go to the toilet in her neighbourhood” is at the centre of WaterAid’s 2012 World Toilet Day campaign.

1 in 3 women worldwide risk shame, disease, harassment and even attack because they have nowhere safe to go to the toilet. Sanitation would make 1.25 billion women’s lives safer and healthier

WaterAid ran their social media campaign called “#1in3women need your support”, asking governments to take action, on Thunderclap.
