Inclusive Sign: Gender-Inclusive Bathrooms

The Importance of Gender-Inclusive Bathrooms

June 9, 2023

When it comes to public spaces, it is crucial to ensure that EVERYONE feels welcome and comfortable, even in the bathroom!

Okay, but why is it important to have gender-inclusive bathrooms? Let’s talk about it!

Safety and Privacy

All menstruators deserve safe access to period products when using them, and we’ve learned that privacy and concealment help to create safety. We recommend that all-gender, single-stall restrooms are stocked with products like thin, concealable pads to establish a safe space for people with periods.

Creating a Welcoming Environment

Gender-inclusive bathrooms send a powerful message of acceptance and support. By visibly demonstrating that a space values diversity and inclusion, it helps to create a sense of belonging for all individuals. 

Inclusive bathroom policies also show that an organization or establishment is committed to upholding the rights and dignity of all employees and visitors. This inclusive environment can lead to increased customer satisfaction, improved employee morale and a positive reputation for the organization.

Hi! I’m Claire. I founded Aunt Flow after getting my period in public without the supplies needed.

At 18 years old, I dedicated my life to developing a solution to ensure businesses and schools could sustainably provide quality period products, for free, in bathrooms. Our products are made with organic cotton and we are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact! Since 2021, we've donated over 6 MILLION period products to menstruators in need. I call this people helping people. PERIOD.®
