Ebba Witt-Brattström
(SE, 1953 -)

Some individuals achieve so much in a lifetime, that it is hard to know where to start. Currently Professor of Scandinavian Literature at the University of Helsinki, Witt-Brattström has written on her personal experience of the 1970s feminist movement, Grupp 8 and was one of the founding members of the 'Feminist Initiative' party. Her debut novel, 
Love/War, will be available from Nordisk Books this Autumn.

Born in Stockholm to a German father and Estonian mother who had sought refuge in Sweden during the war, Witt-Brattström has won numerous awards, for journalism and criticism. She was Swedish newspaper, Expressen's, runner up in their 'Women of the Year 2017' survey. Zara Larsson took the top spot, since you're asking.
