Description

On the International Women's Day we launched a simple visualization based on Open Data of the streets of Montevideo. We showed that our streets, where we remember and recognize our heroes, have a huge bias for men over women. With a simple map we showed every street named after a woman in Montevideo. You could click and see information about that woman including a brief bio. But a move all, this map serves as a reminder that only 100 of about 5000 streets in our city carry the names of women. We're hoping this to be the kickstart of a campaign to change the name of some streets to start to undo that injustice.
