S3 E14 | The sailing tech star behind Sweden’s #MeToo

Carolin Solskär grew up on a tiny island in west Sweden and spent her teenage years and early twenties touring the world as a chef on sailing boats. But she switched direction, studied computer science and business in Stockholm and quickly became one of the most talked about graduates in the tech industry, after launching two startups while still a student and later being shortlisted for Sweden's IT Girl of the Year prize in 2016. As #MeToo spread across the planet in October 2017, she put the wind in the sails of the Swedish chapter of the movement, gathering politicians, artists and celebrities together to rally against sexual violence. You can support The Stockholmer’s fully independent journalism by making a one-off secure contribution of any amount.
