This is a new blog and I don’t know what it will look like in the future, but I started it to talk about the recent developments in the world from a woman’s point of view, from the comfort of my internest. I live in Finland, in one of the world’s most progressive countries when it comes to gender equality, so I have grown up taking it for granted that women have the same rights and liberties as men, with only a slight difference in incomes.
Recently I have began to worry that this equality is threatened. Perhaps not yet in Finland or in Europe, but things are starting to look pretty bad on the other side of the Atlantic. In addition to that, I can’t help noticing that feminism is still widely misunderstood and vilified all over the world, even here in Finland. That’s why I decided it was time to speak up for women, in the spirit of common decency.
