Ever wondered which are the world’s most feminist countries? I must confess feminism has never been one of my travel criteria when choosing a destination, but maybe it’s a factor of growing older that I seem to be developing a keener interest in women’s rights. I stumbled on a list of the world’s most feminist countries on a women’s interest site, so I thought I’d share some of them with you, along with some reasons why you might want to pay a visit.
Known as the land of fire and ice, isolated Iceland is a pretty great place for women. Like many Northern European countries, Iceland is well known for its progressive views on gender and sexuality and is one of the world’s most feminist countries. In fact, the country’s last prime minister, Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir, was not only a female, but openly gay as well. In addition to its strong feelings towards gender equality, Iceland is a beautiful nation filled with stunning glaciers, volcanic rock fields, and natural geysers. Each year millions of tourists head to Iceland to experience the distinctive Icelandic culture and view its breath-taking scenery.
