Metro Feminine

French artist Silvia Radelli noticed that very few Paris Metro stations were named after women. Her clever project Métroféminin remedies the sexist situation with an alternative map of the Paris Metro system. Her renamed stations celebrate everyone from Josephine Baker to Eleanor Roosevelt (preempting FDR) and Jane Austen to Nina Simone. I love that she replaced the Pyramides stop with Nefertiti, how cool is that.
