Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The position of first female cabinet minister in the Finnish Parliament in 1926 was Miina Sillanpää's highest merit during her 38 years long political career. As a socialdemocrat she wanted to improve working womens' conditions having herself started at a cotton factory at the age of 12. The bronze statue from 1968 by Aimo Tukiainen on the waterfront of Tokoi Park has also a head relief on the granite pedestal.

Miina Sillanpää (1866-1952) was a member of Parliament during 1907-47 and Finland's first female member of the Government as the Minister of Social Affairs in 1926-27.

This work 'The Torch' for Miina Sillanpää's memorial was unveiled in 1968. The abstract 5.5 meter-high bronze sculpture on a granite pedestal was made by sculptor Aimo Tukiainen.

The seaside location is a popular picnic spot during summertime and may interfere with the study of the work.
