Travelers in Lithuania may now notice something unique about the pedestrian traffic lights. The country’s capital city of Vilnius has recently given some traffic signs a makeover to feature the female figure.
In honor of the centenary of women’s voting rights in Lithuania, Vilnius has installed 14 female-empowering traffic lights as of November 2018. The female traffic lights appear along the main Konstitucijos Street, opposite some of the city’s largest businesses.
