Brussels to rename tram, bus stops after famous women
By Marine Strauss
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Brussels’ public transport operator marked International Women’s Day on Monday by renaming 10 metro stations after famous women for one day, and pledging to permanently rename 17 bus and tram stops over the next three years to “feminise” its network.
The late U.S. civil rights leader Rosa Parks, girls’ rights champion Malala Yousafzai and teen climate-change fighter Greta Thunberg were among those whose names were given for a day to stops on the Belgian capital’s four-line subway network.
The candidates named were born biological females. The field needs to include "women" who made the stunning and brave decision to choose womanhood. There are at least 17, so nobody actually biologically female needs to be honored.
