The #NCCRWomen campaign celebrates that Swiss women officially gained the right to vote on a federal level on February 7, 1971, after Swiss men decided in favor of women’s suffrage in a nationwide referendum. The country was one of the last countries in Europe to give women the right to vote.

Starting today, the NCCR MUST is in charge of the #NCCRWomen campaign. Every day from Monday through Friday, we will be broadcasting a new video featuring women of the NCCR MUST. On Monday, July 5, we will also release our final video featuring three of our female doctoral students in one video which will also mark the campaign`s summer break.

Our female colleagues will show who they are, what they do and why they’re doing it on
Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram

Please enjoy and share the videos with your family, friends, and scientific network.

The campaign in short: To celebrate Women’s Day 2021 and the 50th anniversary of women's right to vote in Switzerland, we are working with our sister NCCRs across the country to release a series of videos showcasing women working in science. The videos are targeted at women and girls of school and undergraduate age to show what day to day life as a scientist is like and make it more accessible. Each NCCR will host a week where they will publish several videos covering multiple scientific disciplines, from 8 March until 31 October.
