Is Iceland the world's most feminist country?

The Guardian reports that Iceland has just banned strip clubs and is "on the brink of achieving what many considered to be impossible: closing down its sex industry." Every strip club in the country will be shut down, and the new law will make it illegal for a business to profit from the nudity of its employees.

Iceland is the first country in the world to ban stripping for feminist reasons (it is usually banned for religious reasons). Kolbrún Halldórsdóttir, the politician who first proposed the ban, firmly told the national press on Wednesday, "It is not acceptable that women or people in general are a product to be sold." Right on, sister.

This is really quite a revolutionary new law!
