A Better ToiletFor A Cleaner World
A recently published video excerpt (taken from the 2014 video, “No Relief”) by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council highlights the plight of women and girls in countries (particularly India) where there are no proper and safe sanitation options.
Women experience psycho social stress when they do not have access to adequate sanitation facilities. This excerpt from the 2014 video, No Relief features women from the Pune slums in India who share some of the situations that they have experienced. This video was made to complement the WSSCC and DFID-funded SHARE report, “Sanitation Vulnerability: Women’s stress and struggles for violence free sanitation”.
It’s a sobering watch for sure, but it’s worth anyone’s time, if only to see the work that needs to be continued to bring dignity and safety to the women and girls of the world that are still in need of a safe place to care of themselves and their bodies.
