#Wikipedia20 in Switzerland 

In 2021, not only is Wikimedia CH celebrating 20 years of Wikipedia, but we are also focusing on another historical milestone: 50 years of women’s suffrage in Switzerland. Unfortunately, there are still only a few related photos on Wikimedia Commons. Images can be found and uploaded under Category:Women’s suffrage in Switzerland.

There are a lot of projects and events in the pipeline.
