For the past twelve years, Iceland has ranked first in the world of countries leading the charge for gender equality – but why? In part, the answer is found in the country’s sprakkar, an ancient Icelandic word meaning extraordinary or outstanding women. Meet one of those extraordinary women and join Canadian first lady of Iceland, Eliza Reid, as she discusses her new book Secrets of the Sprakkar. In the book, Reid deftly examines her adopted homeland’s attitude toward women: the deep-seated cultural sense of fairness, the influence of current and historical role models and the areas where there is still room for improvement. Don’t miss this unique chance to hear from one of today’s most influential women on the powerful ways in which a tiny country is paving a path forward for us all.
