The Untold Story About the Day the Women of Iceland Brought Their Country to its Knees
On a crisp Fall morning in 1975, the women of Iceland changed their world in a single day, when ninety percent of them walked off the job and out of their homes, refusing to work, cook or take care of the children from noon to midnight. Initially laughed off as “a huge joke” by many men, the strike laid the foundation for Iceland’s status today as the world’s most gender-equal country.
Please join us for a screening of this documentary-in-progress and a conversation with the feisty, hilarious leaders of the strike.
