Inclusive Restroom Design, Part 1: Gender and Signage


Thank you for initiating this series that will expand our understanding of this complicated issue. Well done.

This is very interesting- and a topic we are grappling with how best to solve… the iconography on the signs is one of the issues.. The stick figures are universal graphics understood to those who also may have a language barrier and if we are in China for instance and we can’t read the signs, we can at least understand the iconography – and as you note the codes haven’t caught up to this. Will look forward to parts 2 and 3.
