Have more cubicles in public toilets for women

During the Singapore Symphony Orchestra's concert at the Botanic Gardens on July 11, I noticed about 50 women queueing to use the toilet.

There was no queue on the men's side.

Many public places still have the same number of toilet cubicles for men and women, even though not all men need to use the cubicles when they visit the toilet.

Moreover, it is more common for the women to take their children along to the toilet.
