The program will feature the life and works of Minna Canth (1844-1897), who lived most of her life in Kuopio. In the 1880s, as a widow and while raising seven children, she became known as a social activist, speaking out and writing about about women's rights. She is the only woman in Finland to have a flag day, March 19, named for her, and also known as Social Equality Day. 

Information and short readings of Minna Canth's work will be presented, and Diane Jarvi, musician and poet, will perform.
