Artist Luz Darriba is waging a campaign for the traffic light women to be her public representatives. On International Women's Day on March 8, 2006, Luz and a group of volunteers took to the streets of Lugo in northern Spain to modify 76 pedestrian crossing lights to show female icons. Her art intervention called Señales (Street signs): Woman Pedestrian, You Can Cross the Street Too sparked a public dialogue on women's discrimination and under-representation in even the most everyday things.
