Iceland’s new prime minister is Katrín Jakobsdóttir

But perhaps the something new isn’t all bad. In New Zealand something new has come in the form of Jacinda Ardern, the country’s youngest ever Prime Minister. Canada, of course, has got the uber modern Justin Trudeau and France has got Emmanuel Macron. These are leaders that don’t fit the mould. They’re hardly anti-establishment but they certainly aren’t the old guard.

And now, another young and progressive politician is taking a spot on the global stage. Iceland has elected an environmentalist and feminist Prime Minister in Katrín Jakobsdóttir.

The new prime minister of Iceland is Katrín Jakobsdóttir: a 41-year-old democratic socialist, feminist, anti-militarist who says Iceland will expand its health-care system, “go farther than the Paris Accord” in fighting climate change and strive for increased gender equality.
