Recently I was fortunate to be invited to attend a conference in Iceland. What a fascinating place. The conference was terrific also: called WE2015, the conference was founded by Halla Thomasdottir, a wonderful and powerful person whom I met when we both spoke at TED in 2010 (here is my talk about women and humor). The conference was a series of fascinating discussions about closing the gender gap, and the importance of including men in our fight for equality around the world. Geena Davis was the keynote speaker, and she could not have been more inspiring as she spoke about her Institute On Gender In Media. I live tweet drew the conference as well as some of Iceland. Statistics show that Iceland is the best country for women to live and work, and they celebrated their hundredth anniversary of women’s suffrage while I was there.
I wrote about my trip for NewYorker.com, which you can read here. The post includes more drawings that I did on my visit to this alluring country.
