In an interview last year, the first in a series of small press skirmishes about her personal life made headlines after she went to clubs without her phone during the pandemic and missed a text telling her she was a Covid contact case be. “As a 35-year-old mother, I represent a younger generation,” she said afterwards. “I try to live as I am at my age. Sometimes I feel that even my existence is a provocation for some people.” Sanna Marin pays the price for progress by embracing the status quo
