Pooping may be a subject of potty humor in the West, but for millions of people in underdeveloped countries around the world, sanitation is no laughing matter. According to the United Nations, 2.5 billion people do not have access to proper sanitation, including toilets, with dramatic consequences on their health, dignity and security, the environment, and social and economic development. Globally, 526 million women are forced to go to the toilet in the open. Because they lack access to a toilet that offers privacy, they are forced to wait until after dark before leaving their houses, where they are subjected to physical threats and sexual violence. To highlight these issues, World Toilet Organization, a global non-profit organization, has been celebrating 19 November as the “World Toilet Day”.
