Media action for the International Women’s Day

The ÖH-Bundesvertretung (Federal Representation of the Austrian
National Union of Students)is inviting:

It's time again: 8th March is the International Women's Day and time
to fight against discrimination and unequal treatment of women
outside and inside the universities!

Therefore we are planning a media action on Friday the 7th March at
9:30am at the ramp in front of the main building of the University
of Vienna. We want to illustrate on the ramp a sort of career
ladder/stair to show the hierarchy according to Gender. Additionally
there will be signs with figures from the transfer study from
Bachelor to Master, the special evaluation of the Student Social
Survey to the situation of female students, figures from the
international comparison of female professors and the report of the
Austrian Court of Audit.
