Sweden’s Prime Minister Just Trolled Trump’s All-Male Cabinet In The Best Way

Swedish Prime Minister Isabella Lövin just signed a historic environmental law while simultaneously trolling the new Donald Trump Administration.

On January 23, President Trump signed a devastating anti-abortion executive order while surrounded exclusively by white men. The executive order prevents American aid funds from going to any health organization that even mentions to a woman that safe medical abortions are available in her country. This is a catastrophe for women’s health globally and family planning that empowers women in developing countries.

When Lövin signed the new Swedish law she surrounded herself exclusively with women, painting a picture of what progressive politics really looks like. The law requires Sweden to reach carbon neutrality by 2045.

The image breaks down conventional stereotypes about politics and the role of women in society. It is not unusual to see a group of male politicians taking action but is incredibly (and unfortunately) jarring to see a group of powerful women leaders. Sweden is taking down gender stereotypes and blazing a trail towards fundamentally changing global climate change policy.

When asked whether this photo was deliberately targeting the Trump Administration a spokesperson for Lövin said, “You can interpret it as you want. It’s more that Sweden is a feminist government and this is a very important law that we just decided on. We need climate leadership in the world today. And to make the Paris agreement happen we need climate leadership. I would ask everyone to make their own interpretation.”

Our interpretation is that while Sweden is ultimately showing environmental leadership and shaping the role of women in politics, they also engineered a subtle critique of Trump. Expect furious tweeting from the petulant child currently occupying the White House.
