The other day, 34-year-old Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin found herself at the center of a major scandal. It all started with the publication on the network of pictures of the politician from a new photo shoot for the fashion magazine Trendi. In the pictures published in the official account of the publication, Sanna Marin poses in a black jacket with a deep cut, worn over a naked body. The prime minister's neckline is also accentuated by a vintage necklace from the Kalevala brand.
The appearance of these images on the network had the effect of an exploding bomb. In the comments under the photo on the publication's page, many Internet users criticized Sanna Marin for being too candid for the photo shoot. In their opinion, a politician of this level simply cannot afford to appear half-naked in glossy photographs.
There were also those who, on the contrary, supported Sannu Marin. As a sign of solidarity, they even launched a flash mob on the network: they began to publish their own pictures and funny photos of their pets in a jacket on a naked body, accompanying them with the hashtag #imwithsanna (# yazasanna).
In their posts, supporters of the Finnish Prime Minister also pointed to discrimination, noting that men in society are much less likely than women to be judged by their appearance. As an example, they published photos of male politicians with a naked torso (which are only those photos of Vladimir Putin on horseback) who were not subjected to persecution for this.
Recall that Sanna Marin was elected to the post of head of the Finnish government at the end of last year. A spokeswoman for the Social Democratic Party took over after the resignation of the previous Prime Minister Antti Rinne. The election of Sanna Marin to a high post went down in history: she became the youngest prime minister in the world.
