"A picture book inspired by the Long Friday - a real event in Iceland that inspired women around the world to stand up, walk out, and march together for women's rights. Vera and Mamma are headed out for a march, but it's not just any march: It's October 24 in Reykjavík, and on this day in 1975, the women of Iceland took the day off, walked out of their homes and away from their jobs-as farmworkers, butchers, and fisherwomen; wives, daughters, and children-and marched to demand equality and change, chanting: "I dare! I can! I will!" And they did, inspiring and empowering girls and women to make change, not just in their country, but all around the world"--
