That’s why, as of Jan. 1, all new and renovated buildings with public restrooms in New York are required to have diaper-changing tables in men’s and women’s bathrooms. The provision was announced in April by Gov. Cuomo.

“New York proudly leads the nation in fighting for the rights of working parents, and by ensuring access to these amenities, we will help ensure all New Yorkers can give their children the care they need at this critical stage of their lives,” Cuomo said in a statement.

This initiative has been a long time coming. In 2016, 6 percent of fathers stayed at home to care for their families, according to Pew Research data. That’s double the amount of stay-at-home dads less than 30 years ago.

And it’s certainly a loaded subject. During what has been a contentious time in bathroom-related social justice, perhaps this new law will mark a fresh change.
