WINGS

The Finnish nation­al elec­tion of April 2019 saw a roll­back of the pre­vi­ous rightwing coali­tion gov­ern­ment and a surge for fem­i­nists, left­ists and greens. The new Fem­i­nist Par­ty won no seats, but set a chal­lenge to the oth­er par­ties to be vig­i­lant in pro­tect­ing wom­en’s rights. Kaa­ri­na Kai­lo talks about pol­i­tics and eco­nom­ics of the coun­try, and its strug­gle to retain self-gov­ern­ment in a cor­po­rate-dom­i­nat­ed world.
