It's interesting that the author doesn't touch upon the xenophobia that Norway (and most Scandinavian countries) have towards non-Scandinavians when comparing Norway to France. France has a rather large cultural inclination towards racism as well as sexism (My family is French, I've seen it first hand) especially against Muslims and other immigrants, a feeling mirrored in Northern Europe.

It's fantastic that in Norway men respect women, but large amounts of inequality still exist in the country.

This is an interesting article that touches upon the cultural racism that Norway and other European countries hold towards cultural imports
