Human rights activist Mumtaz Shaikh is on a mission to change the way public spaces exclude women when it comes to sanitation. The average woman in urban India is likely to run into a very uncomfortable problem: a lack of clean public toilets.
Mumtaz has said: "Mumbai has 3,000 free public urinals for men whereas women do not have a single one. Do planners of towns think we are less human?"
By 2015, Mumtaz was tired of women simply having to 'hold it', or risk unsanitary conditions, or become targets of sexual assault when they go to fields or train tracks to relieve themselves. So she launched the #RightToPee campaign in #Mumbai .
To know more about Mumtaz's amazing work, watch her live at the #YKASummit , on September 1 & 2. Click the link in our bio and apply to attend!
