Lady Senators Will Get a Much-Deserved Bigger Bathroom


In good news for equality and bladders, the Senate’s 20 female members are getting a nicer and bigger bathroom.

After the November election, some female senators reported that there were traffic jams in the Senate women’s bathroom, which only has two stalls, for the first time. It was less of a gripe than a cause for celebration; women currently make up a fifth of the entire Senate, a historically unprecedented ratio. But jubilation can only go so far when you really need to pee, which is why the renovations are underway and should be completed after the August recess.

“It’s a really positive sign of how things have changed here,” Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) told the Washington Post, adding that the women are “even going to have a window.”
