Pune, 27th January 2023: Madhushree Kulkarni, a student from Pune, has started a campaign on the platform, highlighting the ordeal that PMPML’s women bus conductors go through because of a lack of toilets for women at Pune’s bus stands.

In her change.org petition, Madhushree writes:

“Imagine working eight-hour shifts standing amidst crowds on a bus. Now imagine doing this without a single, clean washroom accessible to you. This is what our women conductors go through every single day. To deal with the lack of restrooms, they sometimes go to work without drinking water, leading to dehydration. Women conductors have been demanding washrooms for over a decade, but nothing has been done yet!”

They utilise public facilities when using the restroom is necessary, such as during menstrual cycles, which causes infections, some of which may require hospitalisation.

Madhushree, through her petition, is asking the PMPML to construct safe and accessible toilets for women at all bus stands. Her petition has garnered support from nearly 2000 citizens in a matter of days.

“Punekars, let us unite to support our workers by demanding safe and accessible toilets in every bus stand in Pune. We require at least one washroom per 25 women workers and nothing less!” the petition requests.
