Gender in Product Design: Three examples from the Reinvent the Toilet program, July 2020
This case study was developed to help raise awareness of gendered barriers and gaps in product development and what roles they play within the product development process. Awareness of these gendered gaps and barriers should, but not always, play a significant role in product development and service design and delivery as governments and implementers look to fill the gap of sanitation coverage in emerging markets. To fully understand the role gender plays in sanitation, it is important to look beyond just biological (i.e., sex) differences and consider how cultural practices, beliefs, and norms related to gender and sanitation affect everyone. This case study is centered around understanding the importance of this.
