Gender Equality in Iceland

Encouraging little film from ITV about the Icelandic approach to gender equality. It ends by commenting there is still a 14% pay gap – which recently led to Icelandic women leaving work 14% earlier than their male counterparts, to make the point. Humour and activism make good companions….

This film really only skims the surface – and left us with some unanswered questions (for example, where are you in Iceland if you do not self define in binary gender terms?) – but it’s worth a watch. The classroom scenes are great, giving a real sense that these girls will take this learning with them into adulthood.
