Female politicians in Finland (collège 7a)
The pupils made posters of Miina Sillanpää, Tarja Halonen and the 11 ministers and a short video of these together. We noticed that nowadays women in Finlands politic are as powerful as the men and the possibilities to be the chairman in the political party are good also for young women. For today 6 of politcs partys leaders are women.
