Cute start of her speech, mentioning Frederik and trying some Finnish

Mary starts her trip to New York today. Tonight a reception for Women Deliver. Women Deliver is a global organization that focuses on the rights and health of girls and women. The Crown Princess was patron of the most recent large Women Deliver conference, which took place in Copenhagen in 2016. In addition to that, The Crown Princess is an Influencer for Women Deliver’s Deliver-for-Good campaign.

The Crown Princess takes part in the networking arrangement “Denmark: It’s more than a small country – It’s a BIG idea” along with Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Danish companies and others. The goal of the arrangement is to support the efforts by Danish companies to export to the USA and their involvement in the UN’s global goals for sustainable development.

Thanks iceflower, polyesco & Muhler!

Well, I almost never reads DF articles when it comes to other than the BRF, and I'm already regretting reading this one.

Quote from the article:
Quote:
But Princess Mary of Denmark took time out of her hectic timetable to share her patriotic side as she cracked open a can of Carlsberg - one of Denmark's most famous exports - from her adopted home country on Tuesday.
And even worse, they repeat it 8 times.

But they refer to her as ''Crown Princess'' when they're not mentioning her name. - Hmm??????????
Yes, the DF and some of their so-called journalists are really a mystery to me, especially when it comes to how they're using their heads.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #39, 2018.
Written by Marianne Singer.

As you know a number of close royal friends of M&F also went to New York to among other things attend a meeting of the UN General Assembly.
When our reporters met Victoria she asked them to say hi to Mary. (Victoria is popular in DK, and as such gets a good and positive coverage here.) Becuase only an hour later Mary together with the Danish PM was to attend a dinner with the Danish UN ambassador.
Unfortunately their busy schedule prevented Mary and Victoria from meeting. At least for a longer meeting, they have no doubt met briefly.

In fact Mary had arrived in New York only a couple of hours before the dinner.

The PM, Lars Løkke, praised Mary to the sky and commended her especially for her commitment to women's rights, which he said was very much a Danish foreign political issue. - I.e. Mary speaks on behalf of the Danish Parliament, and not only herself, when she opens her mouth and say something about women's rights.
Mary's schedule was packed with meetings and networking, but as usual there was also time to help promoting Danish businesses. One of them being an architect firm that was opening the first office in the hip neighborhood of Tribeca. (Have no idea where in New York that is located though.)
And since PH is no more, it befell on Mary to present the Prince Henrik medal to a Danish business located in USA that has distinguished itself - and Denmark.

And this covers Monday, I guess Tuesday is covered in next issue of BB.

Anyway, here is this weeks issue:

Unfortunately work has an annoying tendency to get in the way of important things, like translating an otherwise interesting interview with Mary about what she was up to while in New York recently, visiting the UN.

So here is a brief summary of an interview in Billed Bladet #40, 2018.
Interviewer: Marianne Singer.

Mary is a member of the international panel; High-Level Task Force for ICPD.

Q: Why is the struggle for girls and women's rights still equally important to You?
Mary explains that girls are women are instrumental in order to create a sustainable development worldwide.
Even though there has been much progress a lot is still needed, especially in regards to a world in rapid change with more long-lasting conflicts, where women are particularly vulnerable.
(Women and girls are especially targeted in warfare. Both in order to create as much devastation and physiological scars as possible. But also to keep your own side fighting... - Because what will happen to our women, if the other side, whom we have terrorized and raped, win?)
Also in regards to the climate changes are women's right crucial. Women are particularly vulnerable to such changes.
(When the economy of social structure is strained or breaking down, women are even less prioritized in regards to education and girls are even more at risk of becoming a "merchandise" directly as well as indirectly.)
The solution and aim is offer equal opportunities for women and also for girls to educate themselves. That benefits everyone, themselves, their families and their countries.
(Indeed! The areas under the control of such entities as the Taliban and ISIS must be extremely wealthy, since they can afford to discount half their talent mass...)

Q: How has Your work developed since You entered the royal stage?
Mary replies that there has been a natural development for her since she began this commitment some 15 years ago and as she learns more about the many aspects that is connected to women's rights.
"This week for example we have talked about women in crisis situations, as refugees, or about how the private sector must be a part of the development and invest in and contribute to an development which also benefits girls and women. You cannot talk about sustainable development or inclusive growth without talking about girls and women. So in that way my role has become broader and has changed, and I speak on different platforms today..."

Q: You still have a great passion for the subject?
"Absolutely" responds Mary. Who has a strong belief that the world will become a better place if women has equal opportunities.
That is far from being the case worldwide and in some places the situation for women is almost unbearable to contemplate. And that must be changed.
She does however go home optimistic and with a number of specific ideas she will work on.

Q: Have You enjoyed Your visit in New York?
She has. Admitting that is has been a busy schedule not only encompassing women's rights but also green energy, sustainable architecture and circular economy.
(Which I must confess I'm not familiar with.)

Q: Do You become proud of representing Denmark, when You hear how much Denmark is a pioneering country for among other things gender equality and green solutions?
Very much so, is Mary's reply.
"Denmark has been a champion because we are a very equal country and we know from experience that that an equal country provides more opportunities inclusive growth and for a well-functioning country in progress. And Denmark is a country where both men and women gets the opportunity to reach their full potential..."
(Emphasized by me. And I will add that it IMO not only applies in gender equality but also economic equality. I.e. income.)

- Well, as you know Mary is not someone to be brief, when she has a message to put across! But I hope this brief summary nevertheless made sense to you.

And here is last weeks issue of BB: https://app.box.com/s/h7fhxk0sjbn5ua6bxrb5xwntez6j4oic
