June 14, 1991: a day that has entered the history of Switzerland
«Les femmes bras croisés, le pays perd pied»
It is with this slogan that women in Switzerland have made themselves heard, ten years after the inclusion of equality between women and men in the Federal Constitution, to finally see this principle come to fruition. The mobilization was huge: nearly half a million women – and many men – went on strike at their workplaces and took to the streets to demand an equality law
June 14, 2019 : towards a new strike day
28 years later – the call for a new strike day is launched. (Frauen*streik)
