Iceland has just made history by becoming the first country in the world to make it illegal to pay women less than men for the same job! The equal pay legislation went into effect on January 1st, and requires any company with 25 or more employees to show proof of their pay equality or they will be fined. The new equal pay law was nearly unanimously supported by both parties in parliament, where women represent 50 percent of its members including female Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir. Sounds like Iceland has been doing it right for a while now. For the past nine years the World Economic Forum has named Iceland the most gender-equal country in the world.
