Letter: All-Gender bathrooms desperately needed
Duke’s Executive Vice President Daniel Ennis must invest in accessible, well-marked all-gender bathrooms (AGBs) across campus, including in the Biology department. At present, there are no accessible AGBs for Biology faculty, staff, students and visitors. The closest option is located in the basement of the French Family Science Center, far from any trafficked areas. The location of this bathroom renders it both inoperative (i.e., no one knows how to find it) and poses a safety risk. The second closest AGB is located several buildings away in the Levine Science Research Center. For several nonbinary and transgender department members, the lack of usable all-gender bathrooms constitutes an urgent need.
