The 2018 gender equality barometer indicates a more equal division of power between the sexes in the Nordic region. Only Finland is lagging behind. #metoo shows more needs to be done in the fight for gender equality. The Nordic region is getting to grips with basic and structural changes in order to improve the gender balance in the workplace and in society as a whole.

Siv Jensen, (Progress Party), to the left and Trine Skei Grande (Liberal Party), to the right. Women have never had so much power in any government.
