Women, forests and business
-I have always considered myself as an equal to men, and my daughter is able to be whatever she wants too, like her brother.
|Satu-Marja Tenhiälä at the gender side event panel|
This was a message from Satu-Marja Tenhiälä when she on behalf of IFFA made a statement at the UNFF 12 side event “Women, Forests and Business Opportunities” in New York 3 May 2017.
Satu-Marja Tenhiälä considered herself lucky and went back in the Finnish forest history where men and women worked side by side in the forests and the forest industry, but men was paid higher than women.
