Pirates, noblewomen and bicycling housewives

About the episode: Why does Norway always rank among the top countries on the planet when it comes to gender equality? It didn’t happen by accident. Instead, it took powerful medieval noblewomen, 19th century farmers’ wives, an early 20th century activist on a bicycle, and the feminists who emerged from the postwar baby boom. And yes, there
