Eeva Karin Kilpi (née Salo; 18 February 1928, Hiitola) is a Finnish writer and feminist.[1] Better known abroad than in Finland, her poetry, characterized as feminist humor, was discovered in the 1980s in Europe.[2]

Biography[edit]

Eeva Karin Salo was born on February 18, 1928, to Solmu Aulis Aimo and Helmi Anna Maria (née Saharinen) Salo within the former Karelian municipality of Hiitola, Finnish Karelia, where she lived until the coming of the Winter War of 1939-1940.[3][4]

During the Winter War, Kilpi and her family survived bombings by hiding in an underground cellar. Her father was later called away to the front lines and the family was forced to evacuate from the region. Kilpi ended up attaining an education within Helsinki, the capital and largest city within Finland.[3][4]
