Women's Day in Iceland on 19 June celebrating the vote for women in 1915:
19 June is Women’s Day in Iceland. The date marks the day 101 years ago when Icelandic women were first given the right to vote.
Iceland took its first step into real suffrage for women on 19 June 1915, when women aged forty and over were given the right to vote in general elections and stand for public office for the first time.
Ever since then, 19 June has been known as ‘Women’s Rights Day’ in Iceland. Many women will be wearing something pink today to mark the occasion.
