Signal 03 / 2021-01-21
A true signal of today’s day and age. Why is a King worth more than a Queen? Or worse, in Dutch: Why is a Lord worth more than a Lady? A subtle form of sexism that isn’t intended to be sexist, but does influence you subconsciously in a small way.
Indy (23) from the Netherlands created a new gender neutral set of playing cards that addresses this issue. She replaced King, Queen, and Jack with Gold, Silver and Bronze. She doesn’t seek to replace or ban the current set, she just wants to offer an alternative for those who want it.
