Not For Sale


Johanna Siguroardottir is Iceland's first female and the world's first openly lesbian head of state.

Iceland just passed a law banning
all strip clubs, making it the first country to ban stripping for
feminist rather than religious reasons. The tiny country has a strong
women's movement and the world's first openly gay head of state, and
almost half its politicians are women.

"It is not acceptable that women or people in general are
a product to be sold." - Kolbrún Halldórsdóttir, the
politician who first proposed the ban.


Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
