A 16-year old girl Aava Murto took on the role of Finland’s Prime Minister Sanna Marin for one day in order to promote girls’ rights.
Girls around the world fear being excluded and discriminated against for getting involved in IT and technology, according to Murto.
“If a girl says she plays video games, she is often considered weird,” Murto said in a speech posted on the government website. “If, on the other hand, a boy says he does not play video games or have a game console, he is considered weird for that reason.”
“I have spoken to female friends my age about online harassment, and it turns out that they have all been asked for nude pictures and they have all been sent nude pictures against their will,” She said.
