Women and Sanitation


The impact of Sanitation on Brazilian Women's Life

Gender inequalities occur at every stage of a woman’s

life, from her childhood to her old age. That is why it

is so important to pay attention to the special needs

of women with regard to the right to water and to the

sanitary sewage in the different phases of their lives.

It is fundamental to note that gender inequality in

access to water and sewage services also affects other

human rights, such as women’s right to health, security,

adequate housing, education and food.
