Happening Today: TEDxReykjavík On Feminism
Rebecca Conway

In conjunction with Reykjavík City’s celebration of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, TEDxReykjavík presents talks by TEDxWomen, in addition to TED and TEDx talks by female speakers. Activist and queer feminist Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir hosts the event—and she is well-suited to do so, having been a spokesperson for transgender people in Iceland, involved in activism both abroad and at home, and on numerous boards and associations for queer and trans students. The talks will be in English, and participation is welcome. Come celebrate women’s suffrage with fries, burgers, and food for thought. Oh, and admission is free!

The talk will be held at 20:00 tonight at Stúdentakjallarinn. For more information, see the Facebook event or our listings page.
