Finland's Prime Minister hands over her power to a 16-year-old girl for a day

Alike reel life, Finnish Prime Minister had handed her power to a 16-year-old girl as a part of a campaign to promote girls' rights in the country. In other words, Marin made a teenager the Prime Minister of the country for a day.


The teenager is Aava Murto of Vaasky in southern Finland. She said she was having an 'exciting day' as she faces the media on the steps of the parliament after a meeting with the chancellor of justice.


Aava is an active campaigner on issues relating to climate changes and human rights. She spoke to several MPs and ministers for development and foreign trade.


She said, "Need to realise more how important they (girls) are, and how they are just as good at technology as boys. I think young people could teach adults to be more innovative and think more about the future."


The move of 'PM for a day' is part of a global 'Girls Takeover' campaign by children's rights charity Plan International. The organisation aims to raise awareness of girls' digital skills in technological industries and highlight the problem of online harassment of women.


Interestingly, this isn't the only swap that is part of the campaign. Top jobs at leading companies like Facebook, Microsoft Twitter, and Samsung will also go to teenage girls in countries like the Philippines, the Netherlands, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
