How will women of today be remembered by history? Will history books of the future be any different from the ones we read today, in regards of women’s achievements? What makes people worth remembering? Why are men’s achievements rather remembered than women’s? Who writes history and how can we take responsibility in the process?

We invite you to a Literary Café where we will contemplate these matters alongside 3 panelists: Þóra Hjörleifsdóttir, Erla Hulda Halldórsdóttir and Nína Björk Jónsdóttir. 

We will start the event by honoring the memory of 5 forgotten women with a short screening of cartoons from the series Brazen: rebel women who rocked the world, by Pénélope Bagieu, directed by Mai Nguyen and Charlotte Cambon.

This event is part of a program developed with the French Embassy and Alliance Française de Reykjavik, with the support of Reykjavik UNESCO City of Literature.
