Proof That I Am Working

Maybe it seems I am spending all my time thinking about film? But no! This afternoon I am reading the Constitution of Finland (in English, of course), which makes pretty OK reading, as these things go.

Like, here, I thought it was really cool that the constitution guarantees children's rights:

Children shall be treated equally and as individuals and they shall be allowed to influence matters pertaining to
themselves to a degree corresponding to their level of development.

That's lifted from
Chapter 2 - Basic rights and liberties
Section 6 - Equality

Everyone is equal before the law.
No one shall, without an acceptable reason, be treated differently from other persons on the ground of sex, age,
origin, language, religion, conviction, opinion, health, disability or other reason that concerns his or her person.

----the kids go here---

Equality of the sexes is promoted in societal activity and working life, especially in the determination of pay and
the other terms of employment, as provided in more detail by an Act.
