History of Switzerland – Women in Focus

For centuries, Swiss women were excluded from civil and political rights despite being a pillar of society. What roles have women played over the last 500 years? Why was the road to women’s suffrage in Switzerland so rocky, and what has changed since its introduction in 1971? The guided tour draws attention to the interconnections permeating the history of women, sheds light on the current situation and takes a look into the future.

History of Switzerland – refugees and migrants

Over the years, many Swiss found work outside the country’s borders, while some even made their fortune there. At the same time, many people have come to Switzerland from abroad. Who are they? How do they cope in Switzerland? And why do people leave their home countries in the first place? Participants will study how people become refugees and migrants – from the fifteenth century to the present day.
