The Progression of Gender-Neutral Bathrooms

By: Klaritza Rico



In 2015, the Obama administration built the first gender-neutral restroom inside the White House in response to the protection of transgender rights. During his presidency, Obama passed a federal law that allowed transgender citizens or anyone to use the restroom that corresponded with their gender identity rather than their biological sex. Since then there has been a huge debate about whether about making all restrooms gender-neutral. Some say it’s a step towards gender equality and others fear that it will allow for predators to snoop on women and children. Recently Trumps administration withdrew the act and instead left it up to the states to decide on the issue. The LGBTQ community and civil rights activists are continuing to push for gender-neutral bathrooms despite the setback.

Audio Report by Alliyah Becerra

More than 750,000 undocumented students have received work permits and deportation relief through the federal government’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. But they now must wait to see what becomes of DACA under the Trump administration. Will all of their hard work towards a degree be thrown away?
