About the blog

Norway celebrated 100 years of women’s suffrage in 2013. In many other countries, women are still fighting. They fight to participate in politics, to have a career and to get an education. They work tirelessly to attain rights we take for granted in Norway. The Chr. Michelsen Institute strives to put women’s rights on the international agenda. Researchers, women’s rights activists, politicians and practitioners  – from Norway, Latin America, Africa and Asia –  contribute to our blog “Now Me: on women’s rights”.
