Possibly because 48 years ago, the women of Iceland went on strike to demand it, and today, on the anniversary of that strike, the women of Iceland are striking again. Although they have the most equality when it comes to opportunities, they’ve slipped down to 2017 rates when it comes to equal pay. Women are making 21 percent less than men. Violence against women is still a real problem,hence the strike. Today, the nation’s men will experience life without women working, even in unpaid work . The last time this happened, the country shut down . I hope that the women of Iceland achieve their goals with this strike because the world is actively trying to push us back in order to make things great for rich men “again. ” Now is the time for the most equal of us to push forward AGAIN.
