Minna Canth was a Finnish writer and social activist. Her work addresses issues of women's rights, particularly in the context of a prevailing culture she considered antithetical to permitting expression and realization of women's aspirations. In her time, she became a controversial figure, due to the asynchrony between her ideas and those of her time. Minna Canth is the first woman to receive her own flag day in Finland, starting on 19 March 2007.
