So when “Women’s International Day” comes up every year, I don’t on a personal level feel like there is a battle that needs to be won in Denmark. That doesn’t mean that I can’t see that women all over the world don’t have the same privileges as I do. And that there is still a lot to be done in other countries. But instead of taking the usual reflection on how to help them, I want to look at, what are the issues in a gender equal society?
Just because we have obtained equal rights, it unfortunately doesn’t mean, that everything is fine and dandy. It might be first world problems, but for those of us living here they feel quite real and should also be addressed.
It’s difficult to choose, but in order to benefit from all the great opportunities that our grandparents, parents and we have created for ourselves, we need to step back and reflect on what we, on an individual basis, really want and why it is important to us?
