TIL In 1975, the women of Iceland went on strike

Like completely

As in not paid work, house work, child-rearing, or anything else expected of women at the time. Most schools closed. Bank execs ended up working teller positions. Flights got cancelled because flight attendants didn't show up

The country basically shut down for a day
