Women may still face tough obstacles in the workplace, but if the "Potty Parity Act" passes they will have a slightly shorter wait to use bathrooms in federal buildings. The act seeks to require a 1-to-1 ratio for women's and men's restrooms. From the article: "'A lot of times people, when I dealt with this bill, called it "potty parity." They made jokes,' said Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., who proposed similar legislation as a state lawmaker that was enacted in the 1990s. 'The fact is, it's not a joke. Not only is it not a joke to women, it's not a joke to men who go with the women who have to wait while they're standing in line,' he said. 'It's also politically very popular. It's the right thing to do and it's catching up with the cultural lag in our society.'"
