Atul Loke

Katra Shaganj, Katra, Uttar Prad, India

Geeta Devi walks almost 6 kilometres every day, in the early morning and late evening, to go to the toilet in some fields. In May 2014 two girls from the local area left home to visit a nearby field that they used as a toilet. They were found dead the next day. They had been raped and were hanging from a tree. Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) and Panos Pictures have documented women and girls and their toilet facilities in 20 countries across every continent to build a visual representation of the day-to-day reality and the effect this has on their lives, both positive and negative. Having access to a safe toilet facility can equal dignity, safety, education, employment and status. My Toilet: Global Stories from Women and Girls will be exhibited at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, London from 17th to 22nd November 2014.
