Pittsburgh City Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak plans to introduce legislation today requiring baby-changing stations in the bathrooms of city-owned buildings, including senior centers, pools, recreation centers and the City-County Building.
Ms. Rudiak's bill would require the stations in both men and women's restrooms.
In a press release, Ms. Rudiak said that while the stations are common in women's restrooms, they're often absent from men's restrooms, making it difficult for fathers and male guardians to care for their children.
"Modern families require modern amenities," she said int he release. "Parenting responsibilities are more equally shared than ever before, and it's time that our public buildings catch up to that trend."
