Finland's third female prime minister, Sanna Marin, took office and took a look at three things about her.

Finland's third and world's youngest female prime minister, Sanna Marin, was the 34-year-old finnish transport minister on Sunday in a 32-29 vote in a high-level vote within the Social Democratic Party, finland's largest party in the coalition government, according to the BBC. Another rival, Antti Lindtman, was nominated as the new prime minister. She is also due to take office this week to attend the 12th-13th EU leaders' summit.

According to the BBC, five parties in Finland's centre-left coalition government, all headed by women, will be led by women. According to the World Economic Forum, Finland's gender equality program has consistently ranked high, with female prime ministers in the past and 47% of Finnish parliaments this year.

Sanna Marin, 34, a political veteran who has been in politics since the age of 27, served as a member of parliament and president of the district council in Tampere and was elected vice-chairman of The Finnish Social Democratic Party at the age of 29.

Why should you get to know the Finnish prime minister? We show you her story with three features:

Growing up in a same-sex family, her mother always supported her.

"We are not treated as real families or treated as equals. 」

Sanna Marin grew up in a gay family and was supported by her mother and partner. She once told the Finnish magazineMenaisetthat growing up feeling invisible and unable to talk openly about her family because they are not considered real family members: "It's a thing that can't be discussed until 2000, when we start talking about the rainbow family publicly." 」

However, because Sanna Marin's personality is very strong, will not be easily influenced by other people's words, so in the process of growing up did not suffer too much bullying. And her mother always supported her in doing whatever she wanted.

Mr Marin said being in a rainbow family reminded her of the importance of equality, justice and human rights.

Firmly believe that equality is the foundation of all development

"For me, people have always been equal, it's not about who's opinioned, it's about everything. 」
For me, people have alwayss have been equal. It's not a matter of opinion. That's the foundation for the al-seach

The 27-year-old, who entered politics and is now Finland's prime minister, says she has never thought about her age or gender: "All I think about is why I'm entering politics and how we can win the trust of the voters." (I have never thought about my age or gender, i think of the reason s i got into and those things for who to hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ve won the trust of the the se?

Family is her biggest backing.

Sanna Marin, who is also a new mother, currently has a 22-month-old baby with her husband and often shares their parenting life on social websites. As a leader of a nation, some questioned whether Sanna Marin would be immune to family influence, she said on Sunday:

"When there was a temporary accident, my husband told me that he and my mother had come up with a way to deal with childcare. 」
(As this situation came as a surprise, it was reassuring that my husband messaged me to say he and my mother have already workedout out how how they will will handle the practical child cares)

Many will compare Sanna Marin to New Zealand's prime minister, Jacinda Alden. Also as a mother and female leader, Alden presents another form of female leadership, and more of a family - a home that is co-created and supportive, and even with the national responsibility, you won't be single-handed at home. While it is not clear how Sanna Marin will lead Finland, what we can be sure of is that the head of state of a country reflects the values that that that country believes in, and that Finland embodies diversity and equality.
