thank you so much Muhler. I look forward to the next parts.
Very nice of Mary to use this as a vehicle to promote not only the conference next month but the topics at hand, Women rights.

Second part of the interview with Mary speaking a very advanced, almost academic Danish: https://app.box.com/s/z0izbpi8isijzt0589xwv63cnmba95ut

This time about her family, children and her as a role-model.

thanks again
Like her statement about her and Frederik being equal in their marriage. Something Frederik made sure to demonstrate when he made a point to introduce Mary again and again in their recent official visit abroad.

Good thought out answers that i feel are natural and honest. love that she ties in her work to everything

You are welcome, ladies.

Just to make a little thing clear:

You are free to download my scans and upload them elsewhere from your own account.
No hot-linking, please. I.e. no linking outside TRF directly to my account.
Otherwise I will have to block the links to my account.

As for copyrights: Eurowoman (and usually Billed Bladet) has copyrights, not me, so they are the ones to credit rather than me.

It's a simple, but necessary precaution and I'm sure you understand and respect this.

Third and final part of the interview in Eurowoman: https://app.box.com/s/23ebfe3umrix2fayf8nu6b4p0i0v3vur

This time about Women Deliver and gender equality in Denmark and elsewhere.

Now, Mary has never been short of words, especially when it's a subjects she's passionate about!
As this interview is very long, I've summarized it and picked out what I think are the most important bits.
If other Danes wish to point out something I omitted, please do so.

Thanks for your huge work, Muhler

I have enjoyed this interview - and as always with the interviews with Mary - learned a lot of new knowledge.

According to DRF's Website CP Mary is in Burkina Faso today and tommorrow.

This visit should have taken place in January but was postponed because of the terror attack there.

Kronprinsesse Mary er landet i Burkina Faso | BILLED-BLADET

BB's Ulrik Ulriksen is with Mary in Burkina Faso and he reports that the delegation touched down in the capital of Ouagadougou late Tuesday evening.
And Wednesday morning she and the Foreign Minister, Christian Jensen, started their visit.

They went to the Kaya region where they visited women and children in villages there and talked to the women. Giving birth in Burkina Faso is very risky indeed. The mortality rate is at medieval levels. And since the average women give birth to 5.7 children the risk of dying while giving birth is very real. And as such Mary having only four children didn't cause any raised eyebrows. The fact that Danish women give birth to 1.7 children on average did however raise eyebrows!

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

Indeed they do.
Kronprinsesse Mary støtter fattige kvinder i Burkina Faso - Afrika - International

I guess it hasn't been announced before due to security issues. Islamists have become increasingly active in that part of Africa.
Another matter is that Danish special forces have been deployed to Mali and that means they have reasonably good intelligence info and soldiers ready to provide protection for Mary and the Foreign Minister.
When visiting places with a higher threat level than usual, it's the military who protects Danish dignitaries, including the DRF.

Thanks :) This will be a quick visit with Mary having duties Friday morning back home in Copenhagen. I guess it fitted with the visit could be squeezed into the calendar these two days after being postphoned back in January. I wish the Crown Princess and the Minister for Foreign Affairs two good days.

Thanks Polyesco & Roskilde.

Not that I have anything against the Foreign Minister, but it fills me with glee that the politicians are obliged to have their name after the name of a member of the DRF on official statements.

DK has indeed for many been involved in projects in Burkina Faso. I remember from my childhood a official Christmas calendar being sold with the proceeds going to Burkina Faso.
Did some reading. Burkina Faso is a mix of Christians, former Maoists (I think you can also call that a religion!), various fractions of Islam and believers in the original religions as well.
Her bodyguards to me smell like FET. They tend to have a more determined and menacing look on their faces than the police officers from PET.

I recognized one PET in one of the photos.

no wonder this visit was unannounced given the terrorist attacks earlier this year and the current security climate worldwide...

it's short but i hope we get some more pictures! burkina faso certainly seems like the kind of place that needs attention to advance women issues.

More pictures and news from today

Crown Princess Mary is meeting a 15 year old mother, who has to cycle home from school to breastfeed the baby during breaks:

Also TV2 is along on this trip...

I have just watched a longer and informative feature about their visit in the 22-News.
Both Mary and the Foreign Minister were interviewed.

TV2 has a reporter along - so I guess we're going to get coverage also tomorrow.

Thanks, Roskilde.

The late news on TV2 had a long report from the visit.

The delegation visited a health care clinic, that in my eyes looked very primitive, but it's pretty well-equipped according to Burkina Faso standards!

Anyway, most women give birth a home. Partly because it costs two Dollars to give birth at a clinic, and that's serious money in rural Burkina Faso, and partly because traditionally the families and men in particular don't feel women should go to a clinic for something as trivial as giving birth. Really, now!
But women's condition during pregnancies, let alone letting them give birth at a clinic, not to mention birth control and allowing women to decide how many children they have goes against traditional male-views. - I mean, a real man who isn't in control of that he is nothing but a "tøffelhelt" (*)

However, the delegation also visited a school, where women and especially their husbands are taught that it does make good sense to make sure their wives are well looked after while pregnant and that it's much more safe to give birth at the clinics, for woman and child. That projects has been going on for two years now, with considerable success they say.

(*) Now I need a little help from English speakers.
What is the English word for a husband who is meek and under control of his wife. The "yes, dear" type. The Danish word is tøffelhelt = slipper(shoe)-hero.

Thank you Muhler and Roskilde - as ever - for the updates. The photo with Mary and the baby is adorable!

In terms of English words or phrases for a meek husband; the ones that spring to mind are "under the thumb," or "hen-pecked". Both could be colloquialisms though, so interested in any variations!

thank you Muhler
the slang word in English would be whipped. (in my neck of the woods)

the part I placed in bold is really important. Men/husbands need to learn and take an active part so there can be improvements. Great job by these organizations

Mary is a natural with babies, very cute
