No toilets, no school

In thousands of villages across the country, girls commonly avoid school because of the absence of toilets. Women have to wake up well before dawn to defecate. Men can do their business just about anywhere. Public toilets and the personal sensitive nature of excretion is not something that has got enough attention from architects or any kind of planners.
