What does the right to equality mean

1. The right to equality

Information on this right

Equal rights for all! Each child is worth just as much as the other. And all children have the same rights. It doesn't matter what country you come from, what skin color you have, what belief you belong to, what language you speak, whether you are a girl or a boy, whether you belong to a minority in your country, whether you grow up poor or rich. Even if your parents or other adults you depend on have done something, you have full rights. Because no child may be punished or disadvantaged for something that has caused its parents or other caregivers.
