As you may know Crown Princess Mary and Denmark will be host for the world's largest women's conference 'Women Deliver' in Copenhagen next week. Crown Princess Mary has been with from the very early beginning... She is deeply involved. She is host and patron. And it's perhaps one of her biggest tasks!

I am therefore very delighthed (but not at all surprised) to see in the DRF royal calendar that Frederik will accompany Mary when she officially opens 'The Women Deliver' conference on Monday

Cant wait for the conference. Mary has worked a lot on this.

Frederik will also have an event on his own in connection with the conference on the 18th

While we're talking about it...

The Danish Foreign Minister will give a speech. So will the PM Lars Løkke - and that's great, they can have a nap or check Facebook while he's on the rostrum.
wow, this is some great royal representation - well done on the netherlands in particular! both maxima and mabel are deeply involved with economic gender equality and women rights, so it's great to see them both coming to the conference through their own social pursuits.

i am very excited to see maxima in one of the panels and that mabel will be moderating another one! will it be possible to live stream the event?

I'm almost certain there will be some sort of live coverage. Perhaps you can find some of your answers here: Women Deliver » Conferences » 2016 Conference

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

Mary's visit to Burkina Faso will, very appropriately, be shown on DR1 Wednesday next week. That means you should be able to watch it outside DK.

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

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #19, 2016.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Who was talking to Mary about her visit to Burkina Faso and how that will influence and be incorporated into the Women Deliver conference.

"I will definitely use my experiences from the field-work in connection with the conference Women Deliver. In what context I will use them, I don't know. But I will definitely use the experiences here from Burkina Faso for example. There is hope. There are investments from the government and and initiatives on grass-root level, so it's a good story. If you can create results here in Burkina Faso, then you can create results elsewhere as well.
Women Deliver is a conference where experiences are to be shared, so that we can learn from each other and become better at adapting the projects which have been fruitful. In that way the experiences can have significance for other countries.
There are many stories and impressions I could take with me from here, but all of it must be used to create action. Women Deliver must be about doing something. About action.
But it takes time. It's a long and strenuous struggle but we can see that there is more focus from the international community. To be directing focus on women is not only the right thing to do. It's also the wise thing to do - to ensure the rights of girls and women.
When women and girls have equal opportunities in relation to men and when they have equal access to health care, political representation, business-opportunities, education, then they not only lift themselves but the whole community. The hope is that we transfer what we promise on a very high level, so that it matters for the girls way out in the small Burkina villages.
It very much makes the same strong impression on me. Each story is personal and is just as valuable as other stories I've been told.
Of course some stories are more harsh than others, but each story is worth listening to.
It's always important that the woman is allowed to have a voice, to tell what she dream about and wish for. But yes, there are many harsh stories that I've heard over many years now and they affect me just as much as the first time I visited Uganda many years ago".

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

It's not all misery, oppression, ignorance and war south of Sahara.

Right now there is an ongoing project well under way to create a green wall along the southern edge of Sahara. Or rather a green belt, some 20-30 kilometers wide and 9.000 kilometers long. Some of that belt will go through Burkina Faso.
Where it has been established there have been great results already.
Partly because this being such a huge, but still relatively cheap project, it creates jobs, lots of jobs! Partly because it blocks the spread of Sahara to the south. That means increased conditions for agriculture south of the belt, which stimulates the economy.
It also means a lot for the wildlife. Animals which were otherwise gone have quickly reestablished a population in the Green Belt, and that's good for tourism.
But just as importantly, because people can find work and a future along the Green Belt, it has been estimated that some 60 million Africans who might otherwise be tempted to seek their fortune elsewhere, i.e. Europe, are likely to stay where they are. And it will be a lot more difficult for extreme organizations like the Islamists, to recruit disgruntled young men for their cause.

If that's not a top engaged and involved Crown Princess!!

I knew that Mary would participate from the very start to the very finish in the conference. That's how she is. And I think we can thank a certain John and Etta Donaldson for that But Mary again and again still manages to impress me with her engagement and involvement!

Mary participates from the early morning at 6:30 am to 22.30 pm in the evening every day. It's rarely seen in the royal world.

Mary's huge popularity and respect among people is well deserved. Yesterday I read this comment I think telling a lot. Even people against the mornachy must agree that she does it very well:

"I myself look forward to the abolition of the Monarchy, although it might not happen in my lifetime. That being said, now we have a Royal House we are damn lucky to have Mary, so we get just a little positive out of it. She tries at least to use her influence and position to create positive change in the world. Frederik's life best decision for himself and Denmark was to marry Mary."
https://www.facebook.com/ditbt/posts/1405422389484975

The Women Deliver conference is Mary's perhaps biggest task and we know she has been involved from the very start. Former Foreign Minister, Mogens Jensen (who Mary work closely with) called the conference for 'their common child'. And has stated that it is Mary's large work behind the scenes that shall be credited for that Denmark next week can hosts the world's largest women's conference.

BB article and picture:
Kronprinsesse Mary til australsk party | BILLED-BLADET


*****

This reception was a 'sneak peek' start at the Women Deliver conference opening tomorrow. It will be some big and VERY busy days for Mary. As the large and serious media have pointed out today: One of the highlights for Mary as Crown Princess.

Here is a good and in-depth article about Mary's succes as Crown Princess from today in the more serious media:

(...)
For making a long sentence short, we can say Crown Princess Mary's efforts can be described with the word - impressive! In very short time she has accomplished amazing things. From the start, she used her unique position to make a difference, and she has lifted the task with both professionalism and passion. Which has resulted in respect.

Few people think about it, but it's not a given that a Crown Princess can establish a fund - which so rapidly grows so big - while avoiding to tangle with the many other players who are in the social sector. But at that point, her strategy to create a framework for new projects and partnerships with other have been clever. The fund is on the way a midwife and partner - and not a competitor.

(...)

Perhaps most importantly, Crown Princess Mary gives a strong impression by working so hard for her causes.

In recent weeks - despite preparations for next week's conference - was she and Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen on a visit to Burkina Faso in order to focus on women's and girls' health and rights.

Shortly before leaving for the impoverished West African country, she also participated in the event 'Denmark eat together' in Nørrebrohallen where 400 ordinary Danes attended the communal event. And Mary met up as a surprise. And a few days earlier, she opened the new social and health school in Vesterbro.

These things witnesses the intensity of her work.

(...)

It's hard to find anything not good to say about the Crown Prince Couple.

Individually and together, the Crown Princess and Crown Prince have achieved a unique popular support and respect among the Danes, and they seem increasingly ready to take over the job, and who someday will be the focal point for the Danes and endow a more than 1,000-year-old monarchy relevant and clout in a modern society.

it indeed was a very good article from Berlingske . About both the impressive work by Mary and on Frederik as well. Indeed they do a wonderful job, both have grown in their roles so much
Thomas Larsen: Mary er ved at redefinere sin rolle som kronprinsesse - Nationalt | www.b.dk

"First, Australian Mary Elizabeth Donaldson married to his chosen one and was one stroke crown princess and future queen of Denmark. Now tones she emerged as an almost royal activist who uses his position to bring attention to disadvantaged and vulnerable groups.
Should we say the cards, Crown Princess efforts primarily described with the word - impressive. In the short time she has accomplished amazing deal. From the start, she used his unique position to make a difference, and she has lifted the task of both professionalism and passion. Which has extorted the respect in the world.. ..

"The process is in full swing. The Crown Prince has become a treasured frontman for important business promotion and big conferences, like he is playing an increasingly central role in state visits both at home and abroad. He has also become more comfortable in dealing with the media and safe in the difficult art to keep talking - even if the strictly formal speech will never be his favorite form of communication.
Moreover, even the harshest critics can not suppress the crown prince huge force, which is that the Danes would simply love him. A large proportion of the population over the years has followed his wrestle with his destiny and his struggle to find his role, and they have seen how he now emerges as a man who embraces the outside world. And that is an essential quality of a future king."

Mary indeed has a very busy week with the Womens Deliver conference. She is the patron and her work calendar clearly shows how she is involved from start to finish .

Today at the reception with the ambassador from Australia and the head of the Australian delegation at the conference . Always with a lovely attitude

Thanks, Polyesco.

It is indeed a very good article, I will write more about it later.

Daily Mail about Mary in Burkina Faso: Crown Princess Mary of Denmark visits labour wards in West Africa to fight for women's sexual and reproductive rights | Daily Mail Online

And Mary at the Australian embassy: Princess Mary dazzles in a JUMPSUIT at the Women Deliver reception in Denmark | Daily Mail Online

First pic of Mary and Mette-Marit at the meeting in Bella Center this morning: Kronprinsesse Mary og kronprinsesse Mette-Marit var morgenfriske i Bella Center | BILLED-BLADET

Right, I'll elaborate on Polyesco's excellent excerpts from an article in the serious and conservative newspaper Berlingske Tidende, written by the political, but also DRF, commentator, Thomas Larsen.

Thomas Larsen: Mary er ved at redefinere sin rolle som kronprinsesse - Nationalt | www.b.dk

He writes about Mary redefining or perhaps rather lifting her role as Crown Princess to a higher level.
Her commitment internationally with Women Deliver and similar organizations not to mention visits abroad putting focus especially on the plight of women being a part of the redefinition of her role and indeed profile.
She has with or involvement and various interviews where she is putting focus on issues regarding women, almost evolved into an "activist-royal".

Her deep involvement with the Mary Foundation, putting focus on more individual social issue, like loneliness, is also something she has taken to above average level.
Thomas Larsen says: To put it briefly, you can first and foremost label the effort of the Crown Princess with the word - impressive.
In a short while she has accomplished astonishingly much. From the start she has used her unique position to make a difference and she has lifted the task with both professionalism and passion. Which has led to respect from internationally.

It is not a given thing that a crown princess can establish a foundation, that is thriving (it has an astonishing fortune of 150 million DKK by now) while at the same time has avoided controversy, both in regards to the funding but also the people it is involved with. But also avoiding usurping other organization that are involved in this field. To them the Mary Foundation is not a competitor, but an ally and support.

Thomas Larsen adds:
On top of that it's obvious that the Crown Princess has succeeded in creating an invisible, but important alliance with many politicians who have met her and followed her work at conferences, travels or have had her visiting some of the parliamentarian committees.
It's characteristic that the Crown Princess is consistently praised by the politicians and that also applies to the ministers who have accompanied her on travels around the world.
Perhaps most importantly of all, the Crown Princess creates a strong impression by working so hard for her causes.


But...
Thomas Larsen continue:
But are no tones of key? The answer is: That you have to have an exceptional good hearing in order to hear them. Which is not the same as saying that the Crown Princess should play down potential challenges.
One them is that she is so preoccupied with her international tasks and the development of the Mary Foundation that she must not forget that her role as Crown Princess is more than being a successful and passionate CEO within the social-political and humanitarian field.

To that comes that the odd critic have remarks that she on several occasions have been close to overstepping the boundary which the royals may not cross and which is about talking politics.


To that Thomas Larsen quotes the DRF expert Jes Fabricius Møller from Copenhagen University, who point out that there is a clear division between the politicians and the DRF. The DRF will not speak up about issues where there is a political opposition in the Parliament.
But no parties are in favor of oppressing women, or believe women should not have equal rights - so Mary can and do speak up about these issues.
But there is a political division in regards to say women constituting a set number of persons on boards, so that is not something Mary talks about.

Another issue is Frederik, Thomas Larsen points out.
Another challende is that Crown Princess Mary can become so significant that she is outshining her husband, Crown Prince Frederik.
In the media, at Christiansborg and in the circle close to the DRF it is whispered (if Thomas Larsen says it is whispered, it is) from time to time that the Crown Prince risk being left in the shadow of his wife and that the balance of the formidable team the two of them constitute, can become askew due to the increasingly marked profile of the Crown Princess.
In the comparatively benign and quiet criticism it has been over again that the Crown Prince - after his many great sports-accomplishments - should show a wider outlook and expand his interests to encompass more than the world of sports. That process is well under way. The Crown Prince has become a treasured figurehead in regards to important commercial offensives and large conferences, just as he is playing an increasingly central role at state visits, both at home and abroad.
He has at the same time become more comfortable in the interaction with the media and confident in the difficult role of giving speeches - even though the strictly formal way of speaking will never become his preferred way of communicating.

To that comes that even his most diehard critics cannot surpress the enormous force of the Crown Prince, that is that the Danes are simply fond of him.
A large segment of the people have over the years followed his grappling with his destiny and his struggle to find his role and they have seen how he today emerges as a person who embraces the world around him. And that is a decisive quality in a future king.

The only thing to really point a finger at, according to Thomas Larsen, is that M&F were mis-casted to take part in the recent trip to Saudi Arabia, which in hindsight hardly is something the ministries, politicians or business organizations are particularly proud about.

To sum up:
Individually and together the Crown Princess and the Crown Prince have achieved a unique puplic popularity and the seem increasingly more ready to lift the task, which is about one day being the rallying point for the Danes and link a more than 1.000 year old monarchy with being relevant and having clout in a modern society.

From Danish Minister Sophie Lohde: "Proud! HRH Crown Princess Mary opens WomenDeliver. Strong speech.
This is not a woman's agenda - but for all"

From Mabel van Oranje: "Let's make sure all girls have choice, not chance"
Crown Princess Mary opens WD2016 with powerful speech.

From Jean Hailes: "Australia is proud of Crown Princess Mary - passionate advocate for the rights of women and girls - opening Women Deliver"

ADDED:
This just got the main place in the evening's first tv-news. With Mary speeching. It's not every day Denmark get the honor of holding the world's most largest conferences.

I'm sure there is much more in the main evening news the next hours.

VIDEO: Kronprins Frederik stolt af kronprinsesse Mary | BILLED-BLADET

A good video from BB with a very passionated Crown Princess Mary delightful talking and telling about the first day of the conference. She held the opening speech which has been praised for.

And especially one was extra excitced - an obviously proud Frederik - who tells about his wifes effort:

"Her opening speech is the super thorough worked and there is professional expertise behind. And of course I'm extremely proud of the delivery of it. It just can't be done much better."

The tenderness you can see in Frederik's eyes and voice when he talks about Mary says a lot.

DR portrait of Crown Princess Mary (in connection with being host for the Women Deliver Conference)

Kronprinsesse Mary - kvindeforkæmperen | Nyheder | DR


(DR1 will tomorrow evening send a new documentary: "Crown Princess Mary's mission")

We see Crown Princess Mary on conferences, on visits to the Danish shelters and many events in Denmark.

We see her at the rostrum of the UN and the International Women's Day in the middle of Copenhagen.

Crown Princess Mary has several key issues, but one of those closest to her heart, is the struggle for women's and girls' rights.

Through her foundation, Mary Foundation, she has focused on domestic violence which each year hits more than 33,000 Danish women.

Will be there without the press and cameras
Her latest trip abroad in April went to Burkina Faso and the Crown Princess is not only there to meet up with the press. She spends a lot of time talking with the women who are involved - one to one, without microphones and cameras shoved up in their faces.

- When I talk to the women, it is very important for me to be present and really listen to their stories, so I can be able to convey and communicate their stories to others who do not have the opportunity to get an insight into what it means to be a woman in a country plagued by poverty and inequality, said the Crown Princess to DR.

Will use her title to something useful
Although Crown Princess Mary think it's hard to see herself as a role model, she is happy to be able to use her title as Crown Princess to focus on women and girls' rights:
- It means a lot to me. It has been a long, exciting and challenging journey. And the more subtle it becomes, and the deeper I go down, the more I want to get involved and do what I can to be one of the voices and actors that really helps to make a difference and create a world where women and girls have equal opportunities and freedom to choose the life they want, said Crown Princess Mary on the journey to Burkina Faso.

The strong commitment of the major humanitarian issues such as women's and girls' rights are not out of thin air - even as a child Mary was very interested in justice.

- From childhood I always had a strong sense of justice, and there are a lot of injustices in this world, the Crown Princess explained to Berlingske.

The professionalism must be in order
For Crown Princess Mary it's the third Women Deliver conference she participates in. Her program is packed with events from early morning to late evening all four days.

And she don't show up to one single opening or a meeting without being thoroughly prepared, and she considers, therefore, that she don't have came sleeping to the many invitations and tasks.

- The professionalism must be in order to be invited to special events, speaking at conferences, be part of a task force and meet special people, for example. Otherwise, you get a different type of invitations, and I will not feel good to be in charge of anything unless I have a deep and broad knowledge of the issue, have Crown Princess Mary told Berlingske.

We conclude with a quote from the head of one of the Crown Princess protectorates, the UN Population Fund, Babatunde Osotimehin:

- The Crown Princess effort is very important. She is an excellent advocate, and what she does is that she spreads the message out to a larger audience and explains that this is an important agenda if we want to make the world a peaceful place. People listen to her - not just because she is the Crown Princess - but also because she is very committed.
