Marta Breen comments:
- “It has been wonderful to experience the book becoming an international hit, and I have learned so much the last couple of years. When I give speeches abroad, the audience often have a lot of questions about how the gender politics works in Norway, and they also tell me about their own situation – so we learn a lot from each other.
- In some countries, the term “feminism” is quite controversial. But it shouldn´t have to be, because feminism is simply the name for the fight against gender discrimination. As a feminist, you do not want a person’s gender to limit their freedom or their opportunities in this world. It is as simple as that.”

We also recommend a text by Marta Breen about her authorship and feminism, which can be found here
