Fed up with the shortage of public toilets for women? Dutch women took the matter to the streets Saturday in a protest aimed at showing the impossibility of using urinals that are exclusively designed for men. By mid-afternoon, more than largely discreet images had been posted on Instagram under the hashtag zeikwijf -- a Dutch word meaning "a woman who urinates" -- many showing protesters attempting ambitious gymnastic poses to get the angle right. While admitting the protest would be somewhat "tongue in cheek", organisers have a serious message, saying they want to prove "that it isn't possible for women to urinate in a decent, hygienic and dignified manner in a public urinal designed for me. The aim of the protest is to draw attention to the lack of public toilet facilities for women with the images to be sent to Jet Bussemaker, the Dutch minister for Education, Culture and Science alongside a petition entitled "Urination Equality in the Netherlands".

Newsflare - Women just has no shame and pee’s in the street
I just got back from some amazing bicycle travel, part of it solo, in a remote region of Patagonia. It was like a backpacking trip on two wheels: spectacular, peaceful, and wild. Once accustomed to the solitude and self-reliance I felt strong, calm, and capable. I realized things had gotten a little weird, though, when I finally spent a night in a hostel in town. When nature called, I actually felt annoyed that I needed to leave my room and walk all the way down the hall to pee in a real toilet. Just peeing behind a tree or wherever would have been so much easier. The main thing I want you to take away from this, assuming you are a woman guys, read on with extreme caution , is that peeing outside as a woman is no big deal.
Pee'd off: Dutch women test urinals in public loo protest
Peeing in Amsterdam [amsterdam alternative 15] I've always considered the phenomenon of the urinal in Amsterdam as an obvious sign that gender equality has not been achieved in this town. While the local government provides ample places to pee for men, hardly any public toilets are available for women. Strictly speaking, this gesture, which facilitates only half the population while the other half is explicitly, blatantly, excluded, cannot be called a public service.
