As Iceland celebrates its 100th anniversary of sovereignty, Mrs. Inga Jona Thordardottir, a former Reykjavik City Council member, explores why Iceland and other Nordic countries are at the top of the list of countries showing the world’s best results in gender equality. The Icelandic women’s movement and the struggle for gender equality has its roots in Iceland’s history and culture and it is an important part of Iceland’s path to independence. Mrs. Thordardottir has been an active participant in the Women’s movement going back to the early seventies and she was Chairperson of Iceland’s Women’s Right Association from 1992 to 1995.
