Fernanda Nissen is one of the important women that forced through voting rights for women in Norway in 1913. One hundred years ago this year! Thank you, Fernanda. Her motto was: There are two important things in life: love and work. She lived accordingly. Her life story is most interesting. Owner Institution: Nasjonalbiblioteket / National Library of Norway

A woman hero in Banda, Uganda. A displaced person. Salary is one dollar a day. In her free time she makes "jewellery" out of scrapped magazine paper.
A bust of Fernanda Nissen, a unique Norwegian woman born in 1862. She accomplished lots of important things for women. You find the bust in Kragerø.
Dagmar Wilson døde 6. januar i år 2011 - 94 år gammel. Dette er historien om en trebarnsmor som organiserte tidenes protest mot den kalde krigens atomprøvesprengninger.
