Inger Støjberg is a Danish politician who served as a government minister in the Danish Parliament.

Støjberg served as the minister for gender equality from 2009 to 2010, as minister for employment between 2010 and 2011, and as minister for immigration, integration and housing between June 2015 and June 2019.[1]

A member of the Danish Parliament from the 2001 elections to 2021, she was a member of the liberal Venstre party until 4 February 2021, but left after a majority of the party's MPs voted to impeach her for an order she gave while serving as minister for immigration.

In December 2021 she was jailed for 60 days for separating asylum seekers from their child brides.[2]
