While we are discussing translations, just a reminder that it is a forum requirement that foreign-language articles and links be accompanied by either a written summary of the article or a Google Translation link. This is to ensure all our members are able to read the information that is being posted.

Here's the feature from the TV2 News yesterday evening:
Mary i etiopisk flygtningelejr: Det er stærke kvinder | Nyhederne.tv2.dk

The little girls and teens who get circumcised gets cut off both the clitoris and the labia and are then sewn together. Today is Mary and the Minister's last day.

Impressed by Mary's Danish. The way she speaks it and the speed is like a native Dane here.

Another video from BB from Day 2: Article as well.

Princess Mary makes humanitarian visit to Ethiopia | smh.com.au
Thanks Royal Rob. It's from Sydney Morning Herald so the message is spread around I see.

*

Today, Day 3:
http://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelige...-i-addis-ababa

Mary has visited a protected home for 96 abused women in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. Despite Addis Ababa five million inhabitants there exist only two homes for battered and abused women. Along the way the women jumped to music and the shoulders went rhythmically up and down on the dancing women. Mary danced respectfully along.

Before leaving Mary said: "Remember that it's not your fault you ended up here. And remember it can never be your own fault that you are exposed to violence."

Mary and the minister will early next week be keynote speakers at a conference in Copenhagen about Stop violence against women.

Visiting the Addis Ababa Fistula hospital today:

And we have today's article from the Court about some of todays activities. Seems to have been three busy days. Today is Mary's last day and she will pprobably return home late tonight:
http://kongehuset.dk/Menu/nyheder/hk...er-addis-ababa

Quote:
The Crown Princess visited early in the day a Safe House for battered women and children run by a local NGO, and was during the visit informed about the history and current activities. The Crown Princess was subsequently shown around and greeted some of the local residents. The center has housed women and children since 2005 and offers in addition to shelter, among other things, medical care and training in self-defense.

The Crown Princess then took part in a lunch-discussion with activists and civil society leaders working with issues from female genital mutilation, sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Later in the day the Crown Princess visited the sustainable business SoleRebels and met in the context the places female founder and entrepreneur. During the visit the Crown Princess presented parts of the production and spoke with some of the employees. SoleRebels aims to create good and well-paying jobs in a community marked by unemployment.

The Crown Princess also visited the Hamlin Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa that treat obstetric fistula. Obstetric fistula occurs in most cases as a birth injury from often young women where the child is stuck resulting in a complicated and protracted birth. Obstetric fistula represents a major part of the sexual and reproductive health problems in Africa and besides physical discomfort often the consequence that the affected women find themselves rejected by their spouse and socially ostracized by the community. During the visit, the Crown Princess was giving an introduction to the hospital's purpose, activities and results and participated in a tour of the hospital and greeted the hospital's health care professionals.

The Crown Princess will tonight attend an evening reception along with the Minister of trade and development at the Danish ambassador's residence.

Thanks, Roskilde.

I see BB has changed it's feature so this will provide a better overview of Mary's activities, in this her visit to Ethiopia in particular: http://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelige/danmark/kronprinsesse-mary-dansede-med-voldsramte-kvinder-i-addis-ababa#!kalooga-17483/~Danmark%20~%22kronprinsesse%20mary%22^0.75

Yes, she speaks Danish as a native here and almost as good as no accent. Here in another video of Mary being interviewed by TV2. This is a shortened clip, the entire clip will be shown in the evening's main news on TV2:

Huge respect and thanks to HRH Princess Mary of Denmark for visiting the site of @soleRebels new production facility!

Thanks, Roskilde

Yes, Mary was featured in the main news. She visited northern Ethiopia where female circumcision is very common indeed.
As Roskilde explained in a previous post that means almost total removal of the girl's genitals, after which they are sewn together, with only a small hole left, so the blood and urine can come out. - But as you can imagine it also means added risk of infections and it's more difficult to keep clean.
On the wedding night the genitals are - cut - open, so that it is possible to have intercourse and to give birth. Needless to say sex is not and is not supposed to be a pleasure.

Progress is slow but nevertheless the number of girls who are not circumcised is rising.
Another method employed is to show a film of a female circumcision to male clan elders, but hardly anyone can (or will) watch the whole film.

love the tim tams comment

Mary meeting the PM where he promised to make progress
"Prime Minister Hailemariam Dessalegn said Ethiopia will realize the target set to end harmful traditional practices including female genital mutilation (FGM) before 2025, the deadline set to meet the goal. While discussing with visiting Danish Crown Princess Mary Elizabeth Donaldson yesterday, Hailemariam said Ethiopia has been working to meet the target to end FGM and child marriage by 2025"
PM says Ethiopia will end FGM, child marriage before deadline

A BT video from today of Mary visiting a shelter for women who have victims of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse: Se video: Mary og Mogens Jensen besøger ofre for kvindevold | Se video: Mary og Mogens Jensen besøger ofre for kvindevold - Royale | www.bt.dk

It seems to me that the security in this place is less obvious. Presumably the shelter is walled or otherwise secured as it is, so that Mary's main security is at the perimeter.

------------------------------

ADDED: A BB video: VIDEO: Kronprinsesse Mary hånd i hånd med levende legende i Etiopien | Billed Bladet
At the shelter Mary spoke to a fourteen year old rape victim who lives there with her child. Her greatest wish is to get an education. - (That's probably her best option anyway, because as a single unmarried mother her chances for a "good marriage" are most likely very limited).

----------------

And a funny BT gallery: Se billederne: Mogens Jensen får overrakt den største sko i Etiopien nogensinde | www.bt.dk
The likable Minster for Developement, Mogens Jensen, was presented with a shoe today. Apparantly it's the largest shoe ever produced in Ethiopia! Size 48. And that is pretty impressive! I'm not the smallest of guys and I use size 45.
Mary, whose husband probably use 44 or 45 is cracking up at the news in the first pic.
Mary gets a pair of shoes as well.
Mary is also seen visiting a clinic for women with birth complications. A fistula (I thing it's called in English. - It's an opening or tear between the vagina and the rectum and often seen at adolescent girls giving birth) is common.

-------------------------------------

Mary was also well featured on the DR1 main news tonight, visiting northern Ethiopia. Where the main topic was female circumcision. Fortunately there is a slow change taking place. As more and more women (and probably men too) realize that female circumcision is not a necessity and that not all women in the word are circumcised. And combined with the fact that it is most unpleasant and in too many cases a fatal procedure more and more mothers decide against it.

-----------------

In general I'd say that Mary's visit is very well covered in the news, also in view of the aftermath of the terrorist attack in Copenhagen that is dominating the news.

Indeed.
Here's a longer feature from DR1's news last night as well:
TV AVISEN | TV | DR

*

Pictures from visiting the Addis Ababa Fistula hospital today.

Fistula is caused by birth complications after circumcision. As a result of a pressure on the pelvis there is created a hole between the abdomen and rectum or bladder. Thereafter the women can't control urine or stool.

It's always a pleasure to see Mary with people, her warmth personality shines through so strong.

Slightly off topic to our Australian members: please explain to those of us who are not well-traveled, what is a Tim Tam?

Tim Tams are a chocolate biscuit made by an Australian company, Arnott's. Each biscuit has two layers of chocolate biscuit with a chocolate cream filling, covered in melted chocolate.

They are very popular in Australia (some die-hard fans will say you aren't a true Australian until you've drunk your coffee/tea through a Tim Tam!)

Thank you for the explanation. They sound delicious - and very chocolatey! I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but some black coffee would balance out all that sweetness.

You can find them sometimes here in Canada. I was introduced to them at a Lord of the Rings convention 10 years ago and...YUM!!! If you love Chocolate, then you've got to try a Tim Tam. :)

It looks like Mary had a very successful visit. I saw a documentary about the Fistula Hospital and the incredibly important work they do on either PBS or the CBC. It's wonderful to see Dr. Hamlin's hard work getting the kind of exposure that comes w/a Royal Visit.

Safe travels home to HRH and the Minister.

Here's an article from Australian Daily Telegraph of Mary's meeting with Dr. Hamlin yesterday. The doctor can soon celebrates her 92st birthday!

"Princess Mary was gracious and warm and very knowledgeable about the work of the hospital and its regional centres around Ethiopia. She spent time with the patients and staff — many of whom are former patients themselves — and was able to visit with a baby girl born that very day, thanks to the world-class hospital facilities,”

Mary and the Minister will probably land safely home in Denmark about now or in the coming hours.
