Secrets of the Sprakkar

Iceland's Extraordinary Women and How They are Changing the World.
by Eliza Reid, The First Lady of Iceland.
Canadian-born writer Eliza Reid never expected to live in Iceland at all—much less become its First Lady. But after meeting her Icelandic husband at university, Eliza's life transformed when he won the presidency. Her new position granted her remarkable insight into the roles of Icelandic women in business, politics, the home, and more. Eliza's immigrant perspective offers an uplifting examination of Iceland's reputation: one of the best places in the world to be a woman. This inspiration explores lessons we can all learn from the sprakkar (outstanding women) of our Nordic neighbors as we strive for gender equality.
