Change Signs in Spain

November 14, 2006

Notice this news from Guardian (UK):

Women get green light in Spain

A Spanish town council is to fight machismo on the streets by decreeing that half of all road signs and traffic signals show silhouettes with feminine attributes, such as a skirt, ribbon and ponytail, instead of just the striding man. (11/10/2006)

Interesting, but not all women wear skirts and ribbons, having ponytails. That’s also the stereotypical gender imagery. 🙄
