19 de Noviembre: Día Mundial del W.C.
World Toilet Day: We Can't Wait While Women Get Assaulted Going to the Toilet
2014 World Toilet Day campaign will draw attention to dignity and
equality issues, especially inspiring action to end open defecation and
putting spotlight on how access to improved sanitation leads to a
reduction in assault and violence on women.
people around the world practice open defecation and many women and
girls get assaulted as they wait until it’s dark to relieve themselves.
World Toilet Day (19 November) was recently established as an official
UN day observed around the world through various initiatives that draw
attention to the global sanitation crisis. To raise awareness and
inspire action, the 2014 campaign builds on initiatives such as ‘end open defecation’, ‘sanitation drive’, ‘we can’t wait’ and ‘the urgent run’ and will feature a high-level event at the UN headquarters on 19 November
as well as the launch of the UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS).
People around the world are encouraged to get involved in the campaign
and help end the sanitation crisis by raising awareness and organising
events and initiatives. A dedicated website will be launched soon, but
in the meantime, get informed and join the conversation #wecantwait,
