Presentation in Norwegian.

Sophie Essmat,is Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Oslo and Akershus (HIOA), where she now works as a librarian. She has been a women's activist and campaigner for women's rights for many years, both in Norway and in Iran where she originally comes from. Essmat is currently head of the Norwegian Library Association (NBF) special group of Multi-Cult (Flerkult).

Does libraries play a role in helping immigrant women to integrate into Norwegiansociety? What is this role? How do immigrant women in libraries use it as a meeting place and what role does the library play in their lives? Such questions are central in Essmat’s speech.
