California Governor Jerry Brown has signed a bill into law which means all single-stall toilet facilities as gender-neutral.

Thus, companies and governments are required to designate all their bathrooms with a single-stall as gender-neutral and install the appropriate signs. They have until March 1st, 2017 to comply with the new law.

"This simple concept is oddly cutting-edge when compared to the discrimination being enacted in other states," said Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting, who introduced the bill, adding that it will "chart a new course of equality for the nation."
