Project Recognizes Contribution Of Immigrant Women To Iceland

Published March 25, 2013

A project currently being undertaken by the Women’s Story Circle and the Reykjavík City Library seeks to recognize the many contributions made by immigrant women on Icelandic culture and society.
Tentatively titled “World Women in Iceland,” the project will result in the publication of a book of interviews with immigrant women in Iceland and a photo exhibit.
“The contribution of the numerous women who, for various reasons, have chosen to make Iceland their home is priceless,” reads the project description on the Reykjavík City Library website. “Women of foreign origin living in Iceland enrich Icelandic culture and society. By making their contribution visible and celebrating it, we want to strengthen multiculturalism in Iceland and at the same time the identity of immigrant women.”
The project is currently seeking nominations for immigrant women to be included in the book, so if you know of a women whose story should be included in the publication you can download the application from the library’s website before 31 March.
