Maikki Friberg writes Letters from London: Upper Class Life, Raising Children and the London Tube

Maikki Friberg (1861–1927) was a Finnish suffragette, activist, geography teacher and journalist. She is best known for her work as chair of the Finnish Feminist Association Unioni and the editor in chief of the Women’s Voice – a magazine she founded. She also worked actively with education, the peace movement and the temperance movement in Finland. She used her extensive international networks to convey European trends to Finland, but she also made Finland more known abroad.
