ABBA-Backed Feminists Poised to Make History in Swedish Vote.
Backed by Benny Andersson of pop legends ABBA, Sweden’s feminist party may make history by becoming the first political group to get into a nation’s legislature with a primary goal of abolishing sexism.
It targets higher taxes to bridge the pay gap for women, a six-hour workday and an even split on parental leave.
Its best-known supporter is ABBA’s Andersson. The pop-idol has since 2009, donated about 145,000 dollars to the party.
Andersson, said in a video posted on the party’s website, that being a feminist means being conscious of the “structural injustices that exist between the sexes.
