Number of female members of parliament in Finland 1983-2019

How far has gender equality progressed in Finland? In the 2019 election, 94 of the 200 representatives in the Parliament of Finland (in Finnish: eduskunta) were female. This was the second highest share of women in parliaments in Europe, a ranking lead by Sweden. Finland is known for being the first country in Europe to grant women the right to vote and run for office, as well as the first to grant universal suffrage regardless of ethnicity or resources. These rights were adopted in 1906, the same year as the Parliament of Finland was established. The third female prime minister of Finland, Sanna Marin, was instated in December 2019. At that time, she was both the world's youngest current state leader as well as the youngest prime minister ever in Finland.
