Behold, fellow Feminists! Battles are being won before our very eyes! Or at least in Iceland.
“Iceland has passed a law that will result in every strip club in the country being shut down. And forget hiring a topless waitress in an attempt to get around the bar: the law, which was passed with no votes against and only two abstentions, will make it illegal for any business to profit from the nudity of its employees.”
Simple and to the point. Wasn’t so hard, now, was it?
Guðrún Jónsdóttir of Stígamót, an organisation based in Reykjavik that campaigns against sexual violence, (said):
“I guess the men of Iceland will just have to get used to the idea that women are not for sale.”
This feminist victories in Iceland remind me of the expansion of women’s rights in Spain in the last decade. And all it took was a government that was committed to equality and had the outrageous conviction that domestic violence was unacceptable.
