Women in Finland were granted full rights to vote and stand for elections 110 years ago. The 1906 Parliament Act that guaranteed universal suffrage and unicameral parliament was the most radical reform of its time in the world. This information package poses the question of how the suffrage reform was achieved and what followed: how have women participated in elections and become Members of Parliament and achieved other positions of trust in the subsequent little over 100 years?
The statistics of the information package will be updated in June 2019 after the European elections.
