Crown Princess set to visit Ethiopia

(Feb 09, 2015, (Copenhagen))--Next week, Crown Princess Mary will travel to Ethiopia to continue furthering Denmark's agenda to improve women's and girls' health and rights issues around the world. Accompanying her will be the trade and development minister, Mogens Jensen.

The pair are set to meet with civil society organisations and individuals championing women's and girls' issues to discuss the specific challenges they face in humanitarian crises, as well as possible solutions. They will also be meeting Ethiopian female entrepreneurs.

”Girls and women have the right to decide over their own bodies, as well as to seek education and contribute to society,” Jensen said. ”If the poorest communities really want to lift themselves up, women must be included.” Read more from The Copenhagen Post  »
