Looks like Australia is taking “Gender Equality” to the next level especially in the city of Melbourne. The traditional figures of the traffic light are going to be joined by a figure in a dress, as part of a gender equality campaign in the city. Not everyone is excited about this. In fact the move has reportedly sparked criticism in Australia, with some dismissing the
equality drive as implying that women can not wear trousers too. The report indicates that Ten female traffic light figures
have been installed in the Melbourne City Centre. “The idea is to install traffic lights with female representation, as well as male representation, to help reduce unconscious bias,” Martine Letts, the chief executive of the Committee of Melbourne, the non-profit behind the initiative, explained. What’s your thoughts? Is this going too far?
