Elisabeth Møller Jensen

Elisabeth Møller Jensen is a pioneer in the field of Nordic women’s literary history. She was chief editor of The Nordic Women’s Literary History (published in Danish and Swedish) and has been literary critic for several of Denmark's national newspapers.

Since 1990, Elisabeth has been the director of KVINFO, The Danish Centre for Information on Women and Gender. During her directorship KVINFO’s budget and staff has increased threefold; KVINFO’s influential magazine “Forum” has been redesigned, relaunched and the circulation doubled; and the first online database of women experts in Europe has gone online.

Furthermore, for the past 6 years Elisabeth and the KVINFO team have designed and managed a national Mentor Network for women from all ethnic backgrounds, which now has more than 3,500 members representing over 125 nationalities. Since 2006 KVINFO has been involved with Women in Dialogue, a programme addressing women’s rights and equal opportunities in the Middle East.

Elisabeth has been instrumental in turning the Centre into a modern self-governing organisation recognised for its efforts in bringing women’s politics and women’s research to the forefront of cultural debate in Denmark.
