The prime minister of Finland , Sanna Marin , left a face-to-face meeting in Brussels on Friday after learning of possible exposure to coronavirus. Marin , 34, intended to return to Finland to self-isolate and undergo a coronavirus test herself. She announced on Twitter that she had asked Stefan Lofven

"If you had to generalize it, it will be men saying it was wrong, and women saying it was fabulous," Paalosalo-Jussinmäki said.

"It was a little bit surprising," she said, adding: "We've had that sort of photo before, obviously, in a woman's glossy fashion magazine: we have portrayed women in blazers with nothing underneath for years and years, with famous people, and they had never created any response like this."

Paalosalo-Jussinmäki told CNN that many critics of the cover story seemed upset that the Prime Minister had featured in a women's lifestyle magazine, and some were angry that she did so as the government deals with the coronavirus pandemic.

"This was seen as a waste of the Prime Minister's time," she said.

But the cover story -- which featured Marin speaking about the demands of her work, exhaustion, and the difficulty of balancing work and family life -- also prompted an outpouring of support on social media. In response, women and men have been posting their own images in blazers, under the hashtag #imwithsanna.

Sanna Marin , 34, selected to become Finland ' s youngest prime minister ever. Current transport minister was yesterday chosen by Social Democratic Party. The proud mother and dad Markus shared a photo of their daughter Emma Amalia Marin at four weeks old on her Instagram page.

"I think it speaks of women being tired and fed up with being restricted and told how to act and look and behave, and being judged by their looks -- if you're young and beautiful, then you can't be taken seriously," Paalosalo-Jussinmäki said.

Marin is far from the first female politician to face criticism for her appearance -- both in public life, and in magazine appearances. In 2016, former British Prime Minister Theresa May faced scrutiny from the tabloid press after being pictured in leather trousers for the Sunday Times Magazine. Meanwhile, British lawmaker Tracy Brabin was this year forced to respond to online trolls after receiving abuse on social media after her shoulder became exposed during a debate in the House of Commons, with some questioning if the MP's outfit was "appropriate attire."

CNN has approached Sanna Marin's office for comment.
