Mary began her day at the Danish Embassy where she had a meeting with Zhor El Horr, lawyer and retired judge, and Rabea Nacri, spokeswoman of the organization ADFM (Association Démocratique des Femmes du Maroc). Following she visited the UAF (Union de L'Action Féminine) a centre for women victims of violence. According to KVINFO more then 62% of Moroccan women have been victims of violence and about 55% of these women are married. This is one of the reasons why Mary have interested in the work between Denmark and Morocco. With her found she she is working to combat domestic violence in the home, something she's been working on in Denmark for quite some years. The UAF want to increase the capacity of shelters and crisis centers in Morocco. Mary met everyone with a smile. She shook hands with hundred of children and women on her second day. I find it life-affirming and wish I could help others as much as Mary does.

Later, Mary visited the family court in Temara. In collaboration with KVINFO a special reception area is made for these women. The Moroccan Ministery of Justice did in 2011 launched a initiative to tackle all this violence especially against women. To know that Mary use her person to help and increase the knowledge to help these women is incredible. Luckily she's not the only one trying to find a solution to all this. So many wants to help the women and give them a better life with their children. On KVINFO's webpage is this statement from MaryShe is a very eloquent woman with her heart the right place:

"My visit to Morocco has provided me with an insight of the Danish experience supporting women victims of violence, and which can benefit women in both Morocco and Denmark. The Danish-Moroccan collaboration is an excellent example of how dialogue and the mutual exchange of experience across cultural boundaries can strengthen the common cause: ensuring women the right to a life free of violence."

Wearing a plain white pencil skirt and a navy blue peplum Mary was dressed so beautifully. The colourful necklace, Marianne Dulong (?), gave me the impression of Moroccan jewellery. Matched with the aquamarine blue Marianne Dulong earrings and the patent blue pumps from Rupert Sanderson. Chanel is the designer of her old beige handbag. A very classic look.
