Iceland

A series of interviews, and photographic study conducted by Hlif Olafsdottir.

Iceland is ranked as the best place in the world to be a woman. Women’s strike of 1975 was a defining moment in the fight for gender equality. Five years later, Vigdís Finnbogadottir became the world’s first democratically elected female president. Björk has been breaking and challenging gender stereotypes for decades. In 2015, a social media campaign #FreeTheNipple, challenged the unfair laws and stigmas against women choosing to go topless. At the beginning of 2018, Iceland became the first country in the world to enforce equal pay. It’s no secret that Iceland is the most feminist country in the world, but how good can it really be?
