  • Les panneaux comportant la mention linemen vont être remplacés par la New Zealand Transport Agency

Elles encouragent à se poser des questionset à ouvrir les yeux sur des choses auxquelles on ne prête plus attention...

Zoe avait remarqué ce panneau pour la première fois en voiture avec son père.

" Je me demandais pourquoi c'était écrit " hommes " alors que les femmes peuvent réparer les lignes électriques elles aussi ",écrit-elle le 18 juin dernier dans une lettre adressée à Fergus Gammie, le directeur général du New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).

Elle précise que ce n'est pas son projet personnel, mais que " certaines filles veulent peut-être apprendre à s'occuper des lignes électriques ". "Je crois que ce panneau est injuste, vous ne croyez pas?", a-t-elle écrit. Peu de temps après, l'agence néo-zélandaise a répondu à Zoe Carew.

La lettre de la petite fille a été prise avec le plus grand sérieux par Fergus Gammie, qui l'a félicitée pour sa remarque.

"Finalement, NZTA a opté pour " line crew " (pour " équipe en charge des lignes ").

L'échange épistolaire, publié sur Twitter par la mère de Zoe Carew, qui se décrit elle-même comme féministe, a été largement partagé sur les réseaux sociaux.
