Lady Light

17 October, 2010

the Dutch demonstrate their Gender Equality in the most unexpected way: street lights.  The pedestrian street lights, as seen in Groningen, display a pony-tailed young lady, rather than the traditional Green Man and Red Man.

Despite their efforts for Gender Equality in street lights, the Netherlands only is only 17th on the World Economic Forum’s Gender Gap Report (falling short of the Philipines and Lesotho, among others.  Predictably, the Scandinavian countries top the list).
