Finland: NYTKIS “Soup Sisters” event brings candidates and voters together in Helsinki to discuss gender equality

[Brussels, 10 April 2015] This past Wednesday, EWL member NYTKIS (Coalition of Finnish Women’s Associations) organised an event in Narinkkatori Square called “Soup Sisters” (Soppaa Siskoilta). Nearly 300 people came out to savor free vegetable soup and to listen to more than 20 candidates from different parties who came to speak about gender equality and their goals concerning it.

NYTKIS Coordinator, Milla Sandt told us: “The afternoon was very successful. The sun was shining, there were many good conversations and we got positive feedback from the audience and candidates.”

Many thanks to Petra Qvist-Hämäläinen for the picture of Anna Jungner-Nordgren (chair of The Women’s Organisation of the Swedish People’s Party in Finland).
