Some 100 women – as well as a couple of men – marched in Tórshavn for International Women’s Day on Friday.
They marched from Mettustova – one of the old houses in downtown Tórshavn – to the concert & entertainment hall Perlan, where speeches were made about various female related topics – including psychological violence, ecofeminism and midwives going on strike.
Speeches were held by Annika Beinta Hoydal, Elin Reinert Planck, Ingilín D. Strøm, Barbara Gaardlykke Apol, Bjørk Sigurdsdóttir Lamhauge & Hervør Pálsdóttir.
There were also other sources of entertainment: Maria Mercedes Lindenskov (a.k.a. Marbles Lost) sang a couple of songs, while Elisa Vang performed stand up.
