Saga Kakala’s role modelsAUTHOR: Saga // CATEGORY: designer, media No Comments
Mrs. Vigdís Finnbogadottir, Iceland’s and the World’s first woman to be elected head of state, is the ideal role model of Ingibjorg Greta, the founder of Saga Kakala.
“Vigdis is a woman I have respected and looked up to in admiration ever since she, initially against all odds, got elected president of Iceland in 1980. Vigdis, who is hugely respected by the people of Iceland, served as president for 4 terms, 16 years in total”, says Ingibjorg Greta of Vigdis, who still remains the longest-serving, elected female head of state of any country in the world.
The photograph shows Ingibjorg Geta talking to Vigdis and her friend, the artist and former branch manager, Hanna Palsdottir. Hanna took a leave of absence from work to work as the campaign manager for Vigdis back in 1980 to make sure Vigdis got elected as the first woman president of Iceland.
