Iceland womens’ strike: pictures

As previously reported, women all over Iceland left work at 14.25 today in a co-ordinated action to highlight continuing inequality in society.

As well as equal pay and promotion opportunities in the workplace and respect in the home, this year’s special theme was domestic violence.

Rallies have been taking place all over Iceland, and not just in Reykjavik. Below is a selection of photos from the north-western town of Isafjordur in the Westfjords.

Part of the Isafjordur rally was to stop outside of the regional courthouse to protest the lenient sentences given for violence and rape against women in Iceland.
