Join us for a book talk with Iceland's First Lady Eliza Reid when she discusses her new book Secrets of the Sprakkar. In a love letter to her adopted homeland of Iceland, Eliza Reid offers a window into a society that sees the benefits of gender equality and how people everywhere can work towards achieving it.
Through her own unconventional story and those of other sprakkar (Icelandic for extraordinary and outstanding women), Reid explores the unique combination of policy, people, and history that has resulted in Iceland topping the World Economic Forum's Gender Gap Index for the past 12 years.
Studies show increased equality leads to a happier, longer living, and more economically prosperous society for all its citizens. From parenting to politics, sexuality to sports, Reid examines what has led to this level of equality in Iceland and shares insights on how we can all help to level the playing field in our day-to-day living.
This event was originally scheduled for February 21. Any tickets purchased for February 21 will be honored at the May 6 event. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
