Gender-Aware Facility Location in Multi-Gender World

LIPIcs-FUN-2018-28.pdf (0.6 MB)


This interdisciplinary (GS and CS) paper starts from considering the problem of locating restrooms or locker rooms in a privacy-preserving way, i.e., so that while following the path to one's room, one cannot peek into another room; the rooms are meant for a multitude of genders, one room per gender. We then proceed to showing that gender inequality (non-uniform treatment of genders by genders) makes the room placement hard. Finally, we delve into specifics of gender definition and consider locating facilities for the genders in a "perfect" way, i.e., so that navigating to the facilities involves only quick binary decisions; on the way, we indicate that there is room for interpretation the facilities under consideration (we outline several possibilities, depending on the application).
