Who do you think of when you think about the story towards gender equality? I think many great women could and should be mentioned, but one very important for me personally is the former President of Finland, Ms Tarja Halonen. She was the first woman to hold that position and during her term a whole generation of young girls grew up in Finland thinking — rightly so — that they can someday too become the President if they want to. The power of example is enormous. And I would also like to name Ms. She was able to build a youth movement, girls and boys, to combat harmful practices, to engage with community and religious leaders and trigger the cultural shift for her country to ban FGM by law. She is also one of our Spotlight champions.
