HÄN – EQUALITY, CULTURE AND WOMEN - conference and workshop as part of the international Gender Equality Awards - on December 3 ,in Tampere, Finland. Hän, which means equal in Finnish, and translates to she, and he, in the third person. Of relevance is the Sapir–Whorf hypothesis - or Whorfianism (a principle claiming that the structure of a language affects its speakers' world view or cognition), and thus people's perceptions are relative to their spoken language, meaning that for Finnish people, it may be easier to understand and accept gender equality more willingly than, for example, speakers of other languages. For example - in Russian, everything has it gender – masculine, feminine or medium, which defines only non-living objects.
