Finland's first female prime minister has been voted into office by the country's parliament.
Jaeaetteenmaeki heads a three-party coalition
Anneli Jaeaetteenmaeki will head a coalition of her own Centre Party, the Social Democrats and the Swedish People's Party.
Her appointment means Finland becomes the only country in Europe to have women as both prime minister and president.
Ms Jaeaetteenmaeki also said she wants half her cabinet ministers to be women.
Ms Jaeaetteenmaeki led her opposition Centre Party to a narrow election victory in March.
Finnish men can be proud that they have courageously sided with equality
The party took 55 seats, just two more than the Social Democrats.
The three parties have an absolute majority in parliament - holding 116 of the 200 seats.
In the cabinet, the Centre Party and Social Democrats will each hold eight cabinet posts, and the People's Party two.
Their coalition deal was sealed on Monday.
President Tarja Halonen, elected two years ago, welcomed Ms Jaeaetteenmaeki's selection.
The president is now joined by a female prime minister
"Finnish men can be proud that they have courageously sided with equality," she said.
"I believe this will be good for Finland's reputation, both for Finnish women
and Finnish men."
The appointment of Ms Jaeaetteenmaeki cements Finland's reputation as a country which nurtures women's political contributions.
In 1906 it became the first country in Europe to give women the vote. Women have previous held senior posts including defence minister, national bank governor, speaker of parliament
The new parliament has 75 female members - 37.5% of the total.
