I Dare! I Can! I Will! The Day the Icelandic Women Walked Out and Inspired the World

Vera and Mamma are headed out for a march, but it’s not just any march. It’s October 24 in Reykjavík, and on this day in 1975, the women of Iceland took the day off, walked out of their homes and away from their jobs — as farmworkers, butchers, and fisherwomen; wives, daughters, and children — and marched to demand equality and change, chanting: “I dare! I can! I will!” And they did, inspiring and empowering girls and women to make change, not just in their country, but all around the world.

This bold and empowering picture book is inspired by the Long Friday — a real event in Iceland that inspired women around the world to stand up, walk out, and march together for women’s rights. The Women's Day Off included an estimated 90% of women in Iceland, and its enduring effects mean that their country has been ranked number one in the world for gender equality by the World Economic Forum for ten years in a row. With extensive back matter about the Women's Day Off and the ongoing quest for women's rights, this is the perfect book to inspire a new generation to fight for equality.
