Equal rights is something that always has a high priority in Sweden. But just as in many other countries there are holes in society where a man has more opportunities than a woman.
Some of these holes are tiny and neglectable and are purely there because they´ve always been there.
Trafficsigns for instance have always had a man on the pedestriansign. But this is something you can remedy if you feel like it. Walking down Kungsgatan I passed a small crossing with four signs and all had been "remodelled" to look female.
Someone has obviously had a lot of time on their hands = )
