Finland PM's outfit sparks sexist comments, Twitterati shows support

Oct 17, 2020 12:18 IST

A photoshoot of Finland's Prime Minister Sanna Marin has become the centre of controversy in the nation, after the 34-year-old was pictured wearing a blazer with no shirt underneath. Marin was viciously attacked by trolls for her 'low-cut' jacket look on the cover of Trendi magazine. Trolls went on moral policing rager asking whether she was 'a model or a prime minister?' The comments angered another section of social media who came out in full support of Marin by posting their own photos wearing a similar look. Women and some men questioned gendered roles and expectations from male versus female politicians.
