The social issue of “Gender Neutral Bathrooms,” is explored using logos (logic) as the main mode of persuasive rhetoric to a different target audience. Two magazine spreads are created for a publication similar to The Walrus magazine in format and readership demographics. The spreads are treated as a feature article, with the first spread as the feature article opening and the second spread continuing the article. The tone of the article is authoritative, informative, and logically persuasive.

For the topic of gender neutral bathrooms, there are not many available photographs to use for a magazine spread aside from pictures of toilets and bathroom stalls. I decided to go for a more illustrative approach so I could incorporate attention grabbing artwork. The headline, "The Restroom Revolution," carries throughout the art as well as the infographic, which is a timeline of the development of public bathrooms.
