Transcript

The cause of long lines for women's public restrooms? Author Kathryn Anthony blames bad design.

In her book, "Defined by Design: The Surprising Power of Hidden Gender, Age, and Body Bias in Everyday Products and Places," Anthony points to the public restrooms at La Jolla Shores as an example of a solution to this problem.

"They're unisex and either everybody waits or nobody waits," Anthony said.

Anthony's book is about the impact of design on our daily lives and gender, age and body biases in places and products.

Anthony joins Midday Edition Tuesday to talk about the problems bad designs create and solutions to those problems.

Anthony is speaking at Warwick's in La Jolla on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
