Crown Princess Mary: “Equality is the Single Most Important Thing”

  March 8, 2016 at 7:13 pm by

Denmark’s Crown Princess tonight delivered a lengthy speech while attending an event with the the Danish Centre for Gender, Equality and Diversity at Vega in Copenhagen, fittingly on International Women’s Day.

She began by making comparisons about what International Women’s Day means to women in different countries around the world: in countries like Denmark, women use it to celebrate what has been achieved to bring equality between genders, while in countries in Central Africa, the women there are still trying to achieve even the most basic of human rights – education, financial independence, family planning.

“Worldwide, there is a long way to go…equality, in my opinion, is the single most important thing we can strive for to improve our world,” Mary said, continuing her speech with statistics and examples of the difference in gender equality around the world.

The Crown Princess, who was dressed in a pair of navy trousers and a Prada beaded jacket that has been in her wardrobe for over a decade, spoke at the event as patron of the upcoming Women Deliver conference that will take place in May in Copenhagen.

    This is a very important issue as all men and women are equal and should be treated as such. I think she is doing a very good job in this area for she sees and hears the issues of inequality everywhere she travels. I think that the people of Denmark are very lucky to have her and her husband as the future King and Queen of Denmark.
