Products of this kind have been available and widely used in Europe for years. Already extremely common and popular in Europe, the trend has hit the U.S. in some major institutions such as Texas A&M, which has installed permanent women's urinals.

GoGirl launched exclusively at the Minneapolis Women's Expo on Jan. 16. "GoGirl was a huge hit! The GoGirl comfort stations had a line throughout the expo weekend. More than 40 women provided video testimonials to share their experiences with the product. We also sold three times the product we had anticipated and sold completely out of GoGirl gear," said Dillon. The GoGirl tour will be appearing at events across Minnesota and the Midwest throughout 2009.
