Princess Mary is particularly engaged with promoting the rights of women worldwide. Early this month she attended an United Nations round-table in Copenhagen for International Women’s Day on 8 March.
UN Women Nordic tweeted after the event: ‘Honoured to welcome HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark to the Gender Diversity Roundtable event to discuss diversity and improving Gender Equality in Denmark.’
In January, Princess Mary announced her non-profit organisation the Mary Foundation would donate to Afghanistan women’s crisis centre.
The organisation donated $50,000 (£37,800) to the centre, which was founded in 2003 by Mary Akrami and is part of the independent Afghan Women Skills Development Center. It was the country’s first women’s crisis centre.
The Mary Foundation also works to help victims of domestic violence, with the issue being one of their three major projects (alongside loneliness and bullying/well-being).

Back in November 2018, the Danish government promised to set aside one billion kroner (£114,437,366) in aid to help promote democracy, fight poverty and create sustainable growth in Ethiopia over the next five years.
Princess Mary visited Ethiopia before. In 2015, she was ‘shaken up’ by local women’s stories of female genital mutilation in Afar.
The mother-of-four told Danish TV: ‘You do get shaken up by the knowledge that such a practice still exists but we have to think beyond judging it.’
