Iceland has been demonstrating to the international community why it ranks number one in the world in closing the gender gap.

The Nordic country recently hosted a conference at the United Nations to highlight the influence society has in the way men treat women.

The Barbershop Conference comes as the UN brings the global community together in 2015 with the hope of advancing women's rights around the world.

Stephanie Castro begins her report with the Icelandic Foreign Minister's response to the question "what makes a man."
