Womens Bathroom Line at Tech Conferences

5 Techy Places Where the Men's Bathroom Line Is Worse Than the Women's

One of the perks of being a geek girl at CES is getting to hang out with the boys. A lot of them! As such, techy events may be some of the few places that the lines for the men's room outlast those for the women's. Here, a list of five awesome bathroom line experiences we've seen in the recent past.

  • CES After running around the corner for a quick bathroom break at this year's CES, I was greeted with a huge line. . . for the men's room. The ladies' was smooth sailing the whole way through.
  • WWDC Apple's developer conference, held in San Francisco each year; again, it's a welcome sight to see lines out the door for the gents and manageable or even empty for the ladies.
  • Apple's campus On an average non-event day, there are plenty of women on Apple's Cupertino, CA campus. . . but there are more guys. During one visit around lunchtime, I noticed some wait time for the guys but hardly any for the women.
  • MacWorld Since it's sort of like a mini-CES, MacWorld experiences a similar bathroom situation. Except once, I saw some women's restrooms being changed to accommodate men — talk about a funny role reversal!
  • E3 There are very few girls at this gaming conference in Los Angeles. . . that means easier access to all of the bathrooms, mirrors, sinks, and hand dryers.

Being in an engineering field, I also tend to see a lot more men than women at conferences. In fact, I derive a bit of joy whenever we have bathroom breaks at one of our quarterly meetings, since there's only ever a few women but 20 or so men. I wonder if/when the balance will shift towards a more even ratio of men and women.
