Thank you Muhler, and Florencia for information and first pictures. I'm glad Mary is working with such worthy causes. Her foundation appears to have helped so many.

It most definitely is a worthy cause. Didn't it start as an anti bullying group and then grew to include the domestic violence part?

I think it started with the two areas “bullying and wellbeing” and “domestic violence”

Wonderful speech. I particularly enjoyed the poem by Marta Tikkanen which I had never read before.
The Mary Foundation deals with very complex and difficult situations; I'm glad Princess Mary chose that particular issue and appears to be devoted to it.

Thanks, Florencia

The poem appears to have become some sort of (very suitable) signature for the domestic abuse part of the Mary Foundation, as it isn't the first time Mary has used it.

Apart from that Billed Bladet's woman in Washington, Anna Johannesen reports that Mary has now returned to DK and that she was accompanied by Caroline Heering.
The two of them went out to have a look at Washington together, when the official part was over.

That's right, Jessrulz

Summary of a note in Billed Bladet #17, 2012.
Mary til Grønland - Mary to Greenland.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

The Australian anti-bullying concept, introduced in Denmark by Mary was introduced in Greenland in 2009 and now Mary will go to Greenland to see what has benn the outcome.
As mentioned above the visit will take place in early June.

In Greenland the anti bullying project is called Kammagiitta.
Mary will visit a kindergarten in Saqqaq and a school in Illulissat.
She will also meet representatives for the municipalities Kanukoka and Naalakkersuisut, where the programme was first started.

Unfortunately social issues involving children is a huge problem in Greenland, in that context the little suitcases handed out to children, containing various toys and teaching and stimulating material have been a major success. - They are in particular handed out a family crisis centres.

One of the things Mary as patron of the Mary Foundation has focused on is violence and abuse within a relationship. In particular violence between teenagers.
Who being inexperienced sometimes don't know for sure what is acceptable and who to talk to about such issues.

This article from DR1 is about the result of a survey by the State Institute for Public Health. DIN MENING: Er det blevet mindre pinligt at snakke om vold? - dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland

Full translation:
Your opinion: Has it become less embarassing to talk about abuse/violence?
Written by Christine Hyldal.

For the past five years the number of 16-24 year old women who have been subjected to violence from a partner has dropped markedly from 10.5 % to 6.5 % within the past five years.
That's what new figures from the State Instutute for Public Helth shows.
The researcher behind the survey believe that the drop is the result of us no longer being afraid to talk about violence among sweethearts. In other words, it's no longer such a big taboo as it used to be.
(What follows is an encouragement to comment).


- As you can tell Mary and the Mary Foundation isn't mentioned, however it was about four or five years ago, Mary put focus on this issue, so perhaps in a small way the effort lead to something?

An article about the survey itself: Forsker: Åbenhed er skyld i færre tilfælde af kærestevold - dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland
The researcher, Karin Helweg-Larsen concludes that openness about the issue is the determining facor in the drop of abuse within relationships among youths.

3.000 youths took part in this survey and Karin Helweg-Larsen explains: "I think it's the major focus there has been on that youths should no longer put up with sweetheart-abuse, that has had an effect. This is a very vulnerable period in their lives, where they have to learn what a good relationship between sweethearts is.
There has become much more openess on physical abuse. Previously it was perhaps a loss of prestige, if you were subjected to violence. Now you know that it is something others are subjected to as well".

3.000 youths between 16 and 24 took part in this survey. Of those 6.5 % said thay had been subjected to physical, psycological or sexual abuse by a boyfriend.

In 2007 a similar survey showed that 10.5 % had been subjected to abuse.

I'm so glad to see that bullying is receiving the attention it deserves. As a teacher for children with special needs (and a person who has a disability), I have seen first hand what harm bullying can inflict. It's lovely to see that Mary is passionate about this issue and is brining attention to it through her foundation. Thank you, as always, for your translation.

This is another area that deserves attention. Though today views about violence in relationships are different than they were several decades back, it's still something that is quite serious. Many young people (women and men) have no idea what a healthy romantic relationship should be for various reasons, such as lack of a good model at home, and they may see something that's dysfunctional as normal and acceptable. Again, I'm glad that Mary's foundation is focusing on this.
