Interview with a purpose

So, now I've visited my dear friend at Bornholm. A wonderful place. I truly look forward to come back one day. While I was away not much has happened for the Crown Princess, but suddenly I came across a few new pictures. Then I realized that the new pictures are part of an interview published by the newspaper Berlingske Tidende. The same paper, who interviewed the Crown Princess when she turned 40 back in 2012, here. Linda Kastrup took these five new pictures and Ole Damkjær interviewed the future Queen of Denmark about her role in the fight for gender equality and violence against women.

In this exclusive interview with Berlingske Tidende the Crown Princess also talks about how she manages to use her status as Crown Princess of Denmark in her work with the humanitarian work, as patron of, among other, the United Nations Population Fund and Danish Refugee Council. We get answers from a very humble Crown Princess, who differently has found her thing to work for. Because of her natural curiosity, she follows closely what's happening around the world and everything that has something to do with her work wherever its as representative of Denmark or as a High Task Force Level-member, which was created to focus on the global fight for girls and women's rights. The Crown Princess emphasize that by focusing on girls and women also benefits the society. Studies has shown that, if ten percent more girls would go to school it will increase the country's GDP by an average of three percent.

I think we meet a sincere, humble and knowledgeable woman, who also happen to be the Crown Princess of Denmark, who knows what she is talking about with a clear vision of what she works to obtain; a world with gender equality, equal possibilities and reversing the social norm in which it is allowed to engage in violence against women. It all sound overwhelming but one step at a time she takes up the challenge. You can read the entire interview right, here.
