‘Female’ pedestrian crossing lights wear skirts

VALENCIA’S drive for equality has reached its pedestrian crossings – coinciding with International Women’s Day today (March 8), the city council has unveiled 20 lights which feature ‘little green women’ instead of ‘little green men’.

The figures on the red and green lights instructing pedestrians when it is safe to cross and when it is not wear skirts to show they are female.

Mayor Joan Ribó (Compromís) says the move has not cost any extra, and will be extended across the city each time a pedestrian crossing light breaks down and needs to be repaired.

In practice, the idea is not new: several already exist in Fuenlabrada (Madrid) and in Sagunto, to the north of Valencia, and was also piloted in A Coruña, Galicia, in 2007.
