I can no longer try on clothes in Marks and Spencers because they allow men into the women’s changing room. I won’t use it because it feels very unsafe if a man is in there too. I have to buy the clothes and take them home to try on and take them back if they don’t fit. I also feel intimidated by the mixed changing rooms at my local swimming pool, which used to be single sex. Whilst there are a few private cubicles you still have men close by invading womens' and girls' privacy. It feels unsafe and unpleasant to use. I don’t go often now. Also some of the toilets are shared at my local comprehensive school which is very awkward and unpleasant for teenage girls dealing with periods and having no privacy.
