More women work out at coed gyms and are comfortable sweating side by side with men. But what about the women's locker room? A recent study found that when it comes changing in the locker room, the acts of disrobing, dressing, showering and being naked in front of others, can be very discomfiting. It's a complex experience as women are faced with an awareness of their bodies different than in any other space. Some women seek privacy while others are very comfortable changing in front of others.

If you are new to high school, the prospect of sharing a locker room during PE can cause lack of sleep. Despite what you might imagine or see in movies, high school locker rooms aren't as bad as you think. Many actually offer some privacy for changing. If you have never entered a high school locker room, it can be hard for you to imagine what you should expect from the communal showering down to the changing area and lockers.
A girl saw Joshua Eckersley when she entered the high school's girl's locker room to use the bathroom, the document says. Eckersley was charged last Thursday with endangering the welfare of a child and lewdness. The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office did not specify in last week's announcement the "indecent act" he allegedly committed. The affidavit provides details on the allegations.
Our daughters spent two years sharing bathrooms and locker rooms with boys while they were attending public school in Europe. We found ourselves in multiple situations that we could not change or even complain about. This dual goal is really at the heart of any Christian parent in any scenario. Going against the grain of culture, I asked the teacher if I might join the class on the trip each week. Initially my concern was that my child who did not proficiently speak the language was going to navigate public transportation with 25 other eight year olds and one teacher.
