Conversing with Eija Mustonen

Many creatures have one in order to protect their delicate body. At this point, I would like to make a statement in the complex and strong female nature, which is so often underestimated and violently hurt. It is surprising that in our days gender equality remains unfinished business in every country of the world. Women and girls too often lack economic autonomy, in many counties have less access to education and healthcare and are under- represented in decision- making at all levels. Not to mention gender- based violence. In order to fight for what we deserve in this tough and unfair world, we put aside our femininity, we "hammer" our emotions and put an armour on.
