Her Royal Highness, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark will cooperate with Canada’s “first lady” Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, the wife of Canada’s highly popular Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. They will both play a central role in a new global campaign to promote women and girls’ political rights. They have both worked extensively with this problem earlier, as well.
It is the international organisation for women’s rights, Women Deliver, that has announced that Crown Princess Mary and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau will be two of the five well-known women who will front the organisation’s new campaign in the future. The campaign is named “Deliver Good” and is going to be a global campaign to promote awareness of the problems associated with gender inequality.
This information became known at a recent reception held by Women Deliver and their partner Deliver for Good in connection with a United Nations meeting in New York. Other notable women that also will support the new campaign are José Alberto “Pepe” Mujica Cordano, Uruguay’s former president and recognised UN politicians Dr Alaa Murabit and Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.
Her Royal Highness has collaborated with Women Deliver before and gave a speech at a conference they held last year. On the website of the campaign, Women Deliver has the following written about the Crown Princess: “Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark is a passionate advocate for health, gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. She is committed to creating awareness, respect and acceptance of women and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights, including; access to family planning and the reduction of maternal and child mortality.”
In addition to the campaign having royal support from the Crown Princess of Denmark, the campaign is also supported by nearly 200 organisations and 56 states. So far 34 ministers and 85 parliamentarians have agreed to be involved in the critical campaign.
