W.O.M.E.N has since the beginning been active in demanding better access to Icelandic classes for foreigners.

  • We advocate for the assessment and recognition of foreign education and training so that immigrant women have the opportunity to work in positions appropriate to their background and will thereby increase their self-confidence and self-respect.
  • We also encourage and support foreign women to continue their education.
  • We offer computer classes for women of foreign origin.
  • We take an active role in public discourse of the Icelandic language, the teaching of Icelandic as a foreign language and the education of immigrant staff.
