In India, no toilets for women
« on: July 11, 2015, 08:12:14 AM »

SHAME: “Even in villages which are well-connected by mobile phones and satellite television, a girl has no birthright to use a covered toilet.” Picture shows a villager in Jammu going to relieve herself. Photo: AP

A young girl in Jharkhand committed suicide because her father refused to build a toilet for her. When will the Indian male’s insensitivity to women’s basic needs change?

Woman mortgages 'Mangalsutra' to build toilet 
Sasaram (Bihar), Jul 18 (PTI) A woman has mortgaged her 'mangalsutra' to construct a toilet in her house at Barahkhanna village here following which Rohtas district administration made her the brand ambassador of total sanitation programme recognising her effort.

Phool Kumari took the step after she had failed to raise adequate money by working as a cook at a local primary school as her farm labourer husband's income is meagre, the local panchayat said.

She also braved the opposition of male members of her family while mortgaging her 'mangalsutra' to arrange the required money, they said.

Rohtas District Magistrate Animesh Kumar Parashar said, "On Wednesday, I and other district administration officials would participate in the inauguration of construction work for a toilet at Kumari's house in the presence of her husband and father-in-law."

The woman was made brand ambassador of the total sanitation programme in the district to inspire others, the District Magistrate said.

"We will ensure that the toilet is constructed within 10 days," he said.
