  1. There’s a long library waitlist for this book, but I will be reading it as soon as there’s a copy available for me. It sounds amazing. Thanks for mentioning it here.

  2. Even though I don’t have the attention-span for nonfiction, this story does sound very interesting. Excellent review!

  3. This sounds like a really great book. I have heard that Iceland is one of the best, if not the best, in gender equality. I think I remember hearing something that years ago, women went on strike to get more equality. Am I thinking of the correct country? I always want to think of Iceland as part of North American, instead of Europe. I know it is right in the middle between the two, but it always catches me off guard when I see it mentioned as part of Europe.

    • You’re right, Melanie. Iceland it at the top for most gender equality issues. They’ve worked hard on it, and it’s paying off for them. And yes, they are the country where the women went on strike. It’s really amazing what they have done there.

  4. She sounds like an amazing female leader. I am always blown away by someone who can speak fluently in a second or more language. Then to be able to use it publicly and effectively? Kudos to Eliza Reid.

    • Thank you, Rae, it was really interesting, and kind of frustrating too, because if they can do it, why can’t the rest of the world!
