Ingibjörg H. Bjarnason: First female member of the Icelandic parliament, 1922-1930

I find it rather hard to fathom why it was only this year, 74 years after this remarkable woman died, that she was honoured with a statue.

It was unveiled on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of women’s voting rights in Iceland.
