Friday 14th June 2019 – Women Strike

Dear all,

A Women Strike will be taking place this Friday 14th June 2019 in Switzerland!

Indeed, on 14th June 1991, around 500’000 women across Switzerland united to demand substantial improvement in regards to gender equality. As we are still waiting for this to happen at many levels, women wish to reinforce their demand and call all members of the community to join on 14th June 2019.

As a Doctoral student, you also have the right to strike, because striking is a right in the Swiss law!

If you wish to join the strike, ADAS is organising a “workshop” starting from 15h30 at the CHUV (Room SAMOS at the PMU, see map below) to prepare banners and signs for the Women Strike march!

Also, most people taking part in the strike will be wearing purple or pink coloured clothes, so check your wardrobe!

For more details, keep reading below.
