How To Be a Scandinavian Feminist

Hvordan være en skandinavisk feminist

The award-winning Norwegian author Marta Breen has written a number of books on feminism, music and women’s history. Among them is the comic book Women in Battle (2018), which has been sold to 26 territories so far.
For the past couple of years she has given lectures on equality and gender roles in countries such as Serbia, Germany, England, Russia, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Brazil. On these travels, Marta Breen has noticed that there is a lot of uncertainty associated with the term feminism, and that many women simply do not dare to take this word in their mouths.
In this manual she explains many myths and misunderstandings about feminism. At the same time, she gives the reader good tips on how to achieve more equality in life – and love.
