Young School girls are too afraid to use unisex toilets over fears of ‘period shaming’ from boys and ‘sexual harassment’.
A growing number of schools are ditching separate gender toilets claiming they are not inclusive to transgender children and are a breeding ground for bullying, shares Daily Mail.
But some girls are avoiding going to the toilet during school hours because of cruel taunts from boys and a lack of privacy, according to the Daily Express.
Some girls even avoid drinking water so that they will not have to use the toilet.
A parent of a secondary school girl told the newspaper that ‘boys are always speculating on whether girls are having their periods according to how long they take in the toilet.’
A spokesperson, told the newspaper that no school girl should feel like they are unable to use the toilet.
She said: ‘No child should avoid school, or stop drinking water so they don’t wee. Girls cannot “hold periods in”.’
