SAFFA IS­LAND

Timeless Travels Magazine - - CURIOUS CITIES -

Saffa Is­land is named af­ter the Sch­weiz­erische Ausstel­lung für Fraue­nar­beit (Swiss Ex­hi­bi­tion for Women’s Work), which oc­curred here in 1958. Although Swiss women only re­ceived the vote in 1971, sculp­tor Her­mann Haller’s tri­umphant bronze re­minds passers-by of the is­land’s part in the process.
