Genderless Seat / Public Seat

Genderless Seat
Genderless Seat

In our life, public seats are everywhere, and most of the widely used public seats are monolithic seats. Although such a seat can seat more people, it ignores the physiological and gender differences. Because men and women are seated differently, when using public facilities, women are more susceptible to physical aggression, which does not reflect social care. As a kind of vulnerable group in society, women should be given more care, and the use of this public seat can better reflect the society's more care of women, and also reflect the universal value of civilized society.
