The future is female in Finland.

Sanna Marin will become the country’s newest prime minister, and at 34 years old, she will be the world’s youngest head of state. In addition, Marin taking the helm will also mean that all five parties of Finland’s coalition government will be led by women.

Marin will be the third woman to take on the role of prime minister in Finland. She will be taking over for Antti Rinne, who has been ousted from the spot only six months into his term. He is being removed due to a dispute about state postal company pay.

She is hopeful that she can repair the rifts left by Rinne’s stumbles. “There’s a lot of work to be done to rebuild trust,” she told reporters, “We are still committed to a common policy program, and that’s the glue that unifies us as the government.”

Meanwhile in America, a country that has never had a female leader, the leadership looks like this:
