Urinals for women? – The old pit toilet re-invented?


Schools should be a testing ground for female urinals, a new report commissioned by the Water Research Commission (WRC) says – and if they work there, such standing urinals should be rolled out more broadly, including at malls and taxi ranks.

The urinals were tested at five schools in KwaZulu-Natal over a two-week project, by what turned out to be mostly primary-school girls. They got a clear thumbs-up from the pupils, with 79% of 236 respondents in a survey rating them better than okay and only one girl saying the experience of using it was bad.

 Most of the girls rated the cleanliness of the no-touch urinals as the part they liked best, although they separately overwhelmingly rated privacy as the most important consideration of toilets, then safety.
