Every fourth boss in senior management is a woman, according to the 2013 Grant Thornton International Business Report. The report illustrates that Finland does not rank anywhere near the top of the list of the countries with more women in leadership roles. In fact, the UN Human Rights Committee has expressed concern about gender inequality in Finnish working life. Although the numbers of women leaders in top management positions varies depending on the study, the glass ceiling phenomenon is real in Finland, which is ranked number 27 in the list.

Taxes were behind the most dramatic price rises in the last year, but other prices stayed low due to consumer caution, low interest rates and falling commodity prices.
