Congresswomen must travel across Statuary Hall to the Congressional Women’s Reading Room to find a restroom when they are in the U.S. House Chamber. Rep. John Boehner has ordered the House Parlimentarian’s office next door to be relocated and converted into a ladies room. Finally…equality for the 71 women of the 112th congress.
The gentlemen of the House have long had a convenient toi-ty just next door where they can run in and out during voting or other business. Female Senators have had a ladies room convenient to Senate chambers since 1993.
