(IWD #2) The one with the Finnish proverb

Tuulia 2

 

 

*International Women’s day series 2/8 *

14 :50 . “In Finland, where I come from, we have this saying : ”Asiat riitelevät, eivät ihmiset”
It means something like : Subjects can fight but people cannot fight. I really believe in this saying.”

Tuulia is the secretary general of the Young European Socialists.

“Especially in politics, when people fight or argue, it is because of an idea or subject. But essentially, human beings cannot fight – they generally do so because of what they believe in – or do not believe in. But if you take those contradictions away and scratch a little bit, you realise that deep down, people are all the same. That they want the same things.
I wish more people understood that.
– It is a shame that in the political sphere, we still do not have enough women in leadership positions. We have to support women so that they get to these positions.
At the same time, I feel proud to see the feminist agenda so high both in my personal agenda and in the agenda of my political family. Feminism is an essential part of our future.”
