For a long time, the women of Lucerne were not allowed to vote or be elected to political office in the canton (and at federal level). On 25 October 1970, the male population of Lucerne voted to give women a political voice at cantonal level. (1971 for women at federal level) The museum commemorates this 50th anniversary with an exhibition (Eine Stimme haben) and an accompanying programme. The exhibition sheds light on one hundred years of struggle for (more) women’s rights and gives the pioneers a voice and a face.
