Overview Kvinnenes by

Oslo is a city in flux. In the last decade alone, a number of new areas, districts and landmarks have appeared. But one thing seems to persist: male dominance. There are still about seven times more men than women who have had a street named after them in the capital, and most busts and statues are of men. Everyone needs to feel represented in public and to be made aware of pioneers and role models in whom they can recognise themselves.

In this feminist guide, you can learn about the women who have already had streets named after them.
