Kogan Scholarship on Single-Sex Restrooms Quoted in Slate

A recent blog posting by Ted Trautman on Slate, “Sex-segregated restrooms: an outdated relic of Victorian paternalism,” praised a book chapter authored by University of Utah College of Law Professor Terry Kogan that appeared in the book Toilet: Public Restrooms and the Politics of Sharing.
