MyToilet: global stories from women and girls. A collective exhibition by Panos Pictures
The toilet – a small but fundamental part of every-day life, wherever you live in the world. Seldom do we pause and think how much we rely on having access to a decent toilet – how it enables us to go to school, work, rest and play. In an exciting new collaboration, Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) and Panos Pictures have documented women and girls and their toilets to build a visual representation of the day to day reality and the effect this has on their lives, both positive and negative.
The exhibition is on view at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, London until 22 November.
You can visit the dedicated website to see the entire project: www.mytoilet.org
