Iceland’s new prime minister is a feminist and environmentalist who is among the youngest leaders in the world. She has a degree in literature with a special interest in Icelandic crime novels. She appeared in a music video 20 years ago with an Icelandic band, Bang Gang. And she’s considered Iceland’s most trusted politician by numerous polls. 

Her name is Katrín Jakobsdóttir, 41, and she’s a mother of three boys and comes from a family of poets and professors. Her new coalition government took power at the end of November, and it spans the political spectrum in Iceland from her Left-Green Movement to the Independence Party to the Progressive Party.

Jakobsdóttir talks with The World’s host Marco Werman about everything from what it’s like to lead a coalition that straddles the left-right political divide to commuting by bicycle.
