In Indian village, strides in expanding access to toilets could stem violence against women

Of the world’s estimated seven billion people, two and a half billion of them lack access to proper sanitation, according to the United Nations, and more than one billion defecate in the open. The problem creates unsanitary conditions and life-threatening diseases and it also affects the safety of women who are targeted when alone outdoors. India is one country that faces these challenges. But as FSRN’s Jasvinder Sehgal reports, one village is making progress and is on track to have toilets for all of its inhabitants.
