A good and bad day for women: Finland vs Hollywood


The French government's week hasn't started well, with the revelation that the High Commissioner for Pensions, Jean-Paul Delevoye, has undeclared interests in the insurance world, stoking anger amongst an already disgruntled French public striking over pension reform. Elsewhere, women are in the spotlight, with Finland set to swear in 34-year-old Sanna Marin as prime minister. She will head up a government of five parties all led by women. There has been less progress in Hollywood, however, where women have once again been left out of the Golden Globes’ best director nominations.
