In today’s day and age, most of us are quite used to the idea that taking care of a child is not just a mother’s responsibility. Men all over the world are speaking up for the recognition they deserve. The traditional and quite sexist way of thinking that only women should be provided all the necessities needed in public places to take care of their children has been a major problem. One of the biggest examples of such unfairness is the lack of changing tables in men’s public bathrooms, but hopefully, with the hashtag #squatforchange going viral, we are up for a very positive change.
Recently, one man named Donte Palmer showed how fathers have to change diapers in public bathrooms since there are no changing tables for men
In a now viral photo, Donte is captured squatting in a public toilet while holding his child on his knees in order to change his diaper.
After Donte’s photo went viral, more men showed their support by capturing themselves squatting in public bathrooms
The movement quickly turned into a viral #squatforchange hashtag with men all over the country demanding changing tables in men’s public bathrooms.
