The Nordic countries – a paradise for women? is a book about and for the Nordic woman and her husband, although we hope that readers in other parts of the world will find it interesting and even useful. There is no uniform pattern for the life led by Nordic women. Rather, women’s lives are varied and multifaceted. This illustrated anthology takes the pulse of women’s life in the Nordic countries as it is lived today. In cameo portraits of reality, viewed from the researcher’s perspective, through the journalist’s glasses, the lens of the photographer’s camera, or interpreted in the artist’s strokes or the poet’s insight. Some parts of the book are bound to provoke, other parts will entertain. What it offers is new thinking and new ideas on a familiar theme.
An exciting book for anyone interested in social trends!
