General | Latest Info

Recently there has been an outpouring of MeToo stories from women of all generations and backgrounds. October 5 New York Times investigation detailed sexual harassment allegations against high-power Hollywood executives dating back to 1990, and more women, many of them well known in the entertainment industry, begin to come forward with their own experiences. This set off a swell of women stepping forward to say they have had to deal with harassment or inequality for years and haven't spoken up until now. While only history will tell, fight against sexual harassment likely will be another powerful movement in Women's rightsperhaps in Denmark, too, as the same women movements we have experienced in the United States have happened there as well. Women in Denmark won the right to vote and run for office in the 1915 constitution. After the signing of the constitution, 20 000 Danish women marched through Copenhagen to Amalienborg Palace to mark historic occasion. Denmark was ahead of the US, as women in America were allowed to vote until 1920. The 2014 World Economic Forums Global Gender Gap Report ranks Denmark fifth in the World in Gender Equality. All of the top Five were Nordic countries, including Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden. By comparison, US ranked 20 in 2014 and 45 in 2016. Remaining on the cutting edge of the Women's Movement, Denmark founded the Feminist Initiative political Party in June of this year and made its political agenda public in September. Five candidates will run in upcoming municipal elections in Copenhagen. Say one of them, Muneeza Rosendahl, Feminism is not just about equality, but about everyone taking part in society equally. Its criticism of power and the fight for civil rights. Perhaps the word Feminism will scare people a little to start with, but we hope to win the word back. Furthermore, parties do not discourage men, but stand for gender equality. There have always been strong women in my family-indeed, my great-great-grandmother Anna Mikkelsen was one of the founders of Danish Home. That takes strength, especially in her day! I begin to wonder how women's roles in her homeland of Denmark compare to what they have been like in the US. According to the National Museum of Denmark, women in the Viking Age were typically housewives, managing home on farm with firm hand. When man was called on expedition, women take over the farm. According To Museum, Viking women are portrayed as independent and possessing rights. Today, women are increasing their representation in the Danish workforce to more than 40 percent, according to a study on gender roles by DePauw University. I find comparisons between America and Denmark interesting and look forward to keeping up on equality issues in both countries. I believe we are in another time of progression and change in the Women's Movement and some day we will look back and see that a shift toward even greater equality has been made both here and in our homeland.
