In the framework of its Equality Policy in Municipalities, the National Council of Women of Luxembourg launched its "Les rues au féminin" project in 2009.
"Les rues au féminin" seeks to sensitise politicians to increase the visibility of deserving women at municipal level by naming new streets, squares or buildings after women. It should not be forgotten that the names of streets, squares or buildings are vectors of memory and constitute a political issue. As this official memory is selective, it is important not to forget deserving and committed women and to make them visible in public places.
Action - Who is she?
In the municipalities participating in this new action, streets named after a woman are given a visual and a QR code. Passers-by can discover their biographies, which can be consulted in three languages.
