NEW PERSPECTIVES: Women in Zermatt – Yesterday and Today



The year 2021 marks the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn by Lucy Walker and the 50th anniversary of the introduction of national women’s suffrage in Switzerland. These two anniversaries have prompted the Matterhorn Museum to take a closer look at the role of women in the history of Zermatt and at the larger questions of gender equality and equal rights in our society.

The exhibition in the museum and the visual staging on the gondola ride up to the Klein Matterhorn will turn the spotlight on the women of Zermatt past and present and their stories. NEW PERSPECTIVES will examine women’s place in society and the relationships between the sexes and invites visitors to contribute something of their own so that in future years we write our history together.
