Women to express their demands on 14 June

According to the organisers, the main demand of the women is for "more time, more pay and more respect".

The year 2021 celebrates 30 years of the Women's Strike and 50 years of Women's Right to Vote. "But we don’t only want to celebrate these anniversaries, but to also continue working for gender equality, especially in the Canton of Zug," write the organisers of a corresponding event to be held in Zug on 14 June.

This consists of a ‘scavenger hunt’ (Postenlauf) on the lake promenade. This is open "to women and men showing solidarity". At its heart is a "Living Library", where various women talk about their personal experiences in care, culture, sexual violence, sexual orientation and retirement provision. Demands can be made visible with chalk or be addressed to politicians on a postcard. Feminist motifs can also be printed on clothing that you bring along yourself, and a feminist work of art can be co-designed during the "art break".

Information on the scavenger hunt’: Start from the Siehbachsaal forecourt from 4 to 8 p.m. ("Living Library" 5 to 7 p.m.). The event is subject to a protection concept. To ensure a smooth implementation, participants must wear a ribbon, which is provided at the start.
