In the article, where the list is presented, it is said that Iceland is an example of a country where women are leaders in various fields, from administration to the world of business, technology, communication and even non-profit organizations.
Prime Minister Katrína Jakobsdóttir needs no introduction.
The article says that Katrín has taken a big step in the fight for women's rights by advocating for both women and men to take advantage of maternity leave, as this prevents discrimination based on gender when it comes to employment.

The company produces a software solution that enables lawyers and litigants to send data electronically to the courts and monitor the progress of their cases electronically."
