Sigurlín Margrét Sigurðardóttir served in the Parliament of Iceland, or Alþing, from 2003 to 2007. She is the first deaf person to serve in Iceland’s national legislative body. During her term in the Alþing, she introduced bills to recognize Icelandic Sign Language as an official language in the country, and to caption all domestically produced television shows.
She introduced a bill to caption all domestically produced television shows, but, sort of ironically, this video isn’t captioned! 🙂
It was before 2000. CC was not available in Iceland. Right now Iceland has that equal access.
