EQUALITY: The Valencia Community Consumers Union says public baby changing units should be available to everyone, irrespective of gender CREDIT: Shutterstock


A DAD registered a complaint against a Valencia restaurant after he was told he was not allowed to use the ladies’ loos to change his baby’s nappy.

The Valencia Community Consumers Union has now reported the establishment in Naquera to the regional Equality ministry for stopping the father from going into the women’s toilets where its baby changing unit is located for a possible violation of gender equality laws.

The consumer organisation maintains public establishments should be required to provide baby changing units and that they should be located in areas where they can be accessed by anyone, irrespective of their gender.

Placing baby changing facilities in women’s lavatories reinforces old gender stereotypes, the organisation argues.
