Something about the call of nature

I want to call your attention to something I didn't know about until I read a little article entitled "Equality Comes in Strange Places -- Like The Bathroom". Here's how it gets started:

It seems like such a little thing, but it's the little things that can make all of the difference in fairness between the genders. Women are finally getting a chance to have equality at the Capitol.

At least, in the bathroom.

It's being called the "Restroom Gender Parity in Federal Buildings Act," and simply put, it means that all federal buildings must now have as many women's toilets available as they have men's toilet and urinals. It seems like such a small issue, but in fact is an amazing step towards admitting that federal work areas may no longer be the male-dominated spaces they have been assumed to be in the past.

I agree.

The article also mentions a few other gender equality issues that are worth thinking about.
