Gender and politics in Finland

Front Cover
Avebury, 1992 - Political Science - 127 pages
The problems of gender politics are reviewed and discussed using Finland as a case study. The Finland case is interesting because the country is seen to be advanced in terms of women's representation and still has a strong welfare state. It is also the border between East and West and important in terms of studying 'other' cultures. The book concludes that equality in Finland is actually a myth.
