About the event

Bathrooms have long been battlegrounds for equality, including fights for women's access to bathrooms, for accessible facilities for people with disabilities, and against racial segregation. The right to use a bathroom safely and privately is fundamental to individual privacy, dignity, and bodily autonomy. Yet despite the decades-long recognition of trans people's rights to bathroom access under Canadian law, discrimination continues daily, and bathrooms remain sites of potential violence for many. At the same time, recent political efforts threaten the very foundation of these fundamental rights. This talk calls for us to move beyond ‘stalled’ progress to bathroom rights for all.
