University of Chicago Law School Toilet Survey

Perhaps more sociology than law –

bq. Although there is a great deal of informal griping about the long lines for women’s toilets in many public facilities, there is not that much detailed information. In particular, because men and women rarely compare detailed notes about toilet facilities, there seems to be a tendency on the part of both sexes to assume that an equal number of toilet facilities are available to men and women, but women simply take longer, resulting in longer lines. In fact, however, most older public toilets do not seem to offer anything like equality of opportunity to men and women.

People who go out in a mixed group can do the survey posted at the University of Chicago Law School site. It should be interesting if only just to make the comparison, which we don’t usually do.

I suspect it’s only intended for the USA, but it doesn’t say so.
