What persons have to say about the icons


„Icons are an important tool for transporting information. It is necessary to show that nowadays a team does not consist solely of men and that a certain diversity is recognizable.“

Michaela Lackner, Associate Professor for Hygiene and Medical Microbiology


„For me the icons are one puzzle piece in our efforts to make women visible, especially, of course, in university life. We often overlook the importance of these so-called ‘little things’, and their importance and effect should not be underestimated.“

Margarethe Hochleitner, Professor for Gender Medicine


„With these icons we want to make a contribution toward making women visible at the universities and in science.“

W. Wolfgang Fleischhacker, Rektor


Well, my favorite icon is the scientist looking through the microscope. Why? Because she looks so concentrated and confident – a good alternative to the silly pictures of career women holding a briefcase and climbing stairs in high heels."
