Women's Voices - #losmirzue #ecoutemoi #ascoltami

2021 is the 50th anniversary for women getting the right to vote in Switzerland. But just because women have the right to vote, does this mean their voices are heard? The women’s voices initiative wants to hear from everybody in Switzerland about what it means for women to have a voice.

The Center for the Study of Language and Society (CSLS) at the University of Bern launched a social media campaign on Instagram and Facebook (@womensvoices.ch) with the hashtags #losmirzue, #ecoutemoi and #ascoltami. On the campaign website and on the social mediawill go live at the end of next week, and that’s when we’ll also start posting to social media. We’ll be posting facts about language and gender and information about sexism and women’s visibility. And we’ll be asking people to post videos of themselves talking about what it means for women in Switzerland to have a voice.
