The campaign is aimed at creating safe, affordable, and clean public toilets for women in India, and they've also made a petition to the CM of Telangana to do the same in Hyderabad.

The video follows a woman struggling to find a safe public bathroom in the city on an average day.

"We want a city where women do not have to hold their bladders. Don't Hold It In is a campaign to talk about women's sanitation woes, to make your voices be heard," Hyderabad Urban Lab told BuzzFeed.

You can sign the petition here to help make Hyderabad a city with safe and clean toilets for women.
