"Stockholm is as a modern city and needs a modern way of ploughing," Stockholm's shadow city commissioner Daniel Helldén of the Green Party told The Local.
"We need access for everyone in the city, today it's mostly men who are prioritized when it comes to snow ploughing. What we want is a more gender equal ploughing system."
Inspired by authorities in the municipality of Karlskoga, Helldén explained that snowploughs in Stockholm typically target areas frequented by men, such as the roads, rather than entries to day cares, footpaths, and cycle paths, which are more often used by women.
After review, Karlskoga prioritized day cares, where parents usually go first in the morning, followed by areas around the largest work places regardless of gender, followed by schools, and then the main roads. As a result, the municipality noted that it had become more accessible for everyone during and after snowfall, particularly children.
This is the kind of shit why my great-great-grandfather left that fucking dump.
