To mark World Toilet Day, the ‘My Toilet’ exhibition (organised by Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor and Panos Pictures) documents women and girls and their toilets to build a visual representation of the day to day reality and the effect this has on their lives, both positive and negative.
Images and stories from every continent show that, although the type of toilet changes from country to country, the impacts remain the same. For women and girls, having a toilet can mean dignity, safety, education, employment, status and more. A toilet equals far more than just a toilet.
The exhibition will feature one person from each of 20 countries, from Australia to Ghana, to India and even Finchley in London. For those who can’t make it to the London exhibition, the My Toilet website will host all of these images and many more.
