Finland became the first country in Europe to grant women the right to vote in 1906, and the first country in the world where women could run for office. In 2000, Finns elected their first female president, Tarja Halonen, who won a second term in 2006.
Although substantial progress has been made, the roles of Finnish women--in the political, professional, and social spheres--continue to evolve. Artist and choreographer Maija Hirvanen explores the challenges women in Finland still face today.
