Huffington Post: Toilets: A Simple and Surprising Way to Advance Equality for Girls and Women
Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of the Global Poverty Project

“Getting a toilet into every home could be one of the best ways to promote equality for girls and women. … By increasing funding for water and sanitation … in fiscal year 2016, the United States can continue to expand opportunities for girls and women around the world. … Lack of access to sanitation is a problem worldwide. Of course, increasing access to toilets is not a silver bullet. Heightened assistance is needed to see similar progress in countries around the world. We must call on world leaders to increase funding for water and sanitation” (4/14).
