The story of a Transgender Woman

During my visit of the Pride House in Stockholm, I met with a wonderfully inspiring person: Emilia. Emilia is a transgender woman who has made it her mission to share her journey with other people who might be struggling with life as a transgender person or with their transition. In our conversation she is notContinue reading “The story of a Transgender Woman”

Sweden: feminism in progress

My first day at the Gay Pride 2019 began at the Pride House. (For those of you who don’t know what the Pride House is, read my last post here!)I was really excited that day, probably even the most excited from all my interviews I have ever held before. Why? Because this was my firstContinue reading “Sweden: feminism in progress”

Stockholm – the 2019 Gay Pride

After Denmark, I drove further to Sweden. Luck was on my side: by pure coinicidence, during my time in Stockholm, the Gay Pride took place. It was a truly special experience that I won’t forget so soon. It felt like the whole city and all its citizens were coloured in the colors of the rainbow.Continue reading “Stockholm – the 2019 Gay Pride”

Everybody has been affected by thisContinue reading “My Japanese ballad”

One day I decided to visit the University of Copenhagen in hope of finding someone to talk toContinue reading “The Danes and feminism”

KULU – empowering women in development

I started off my series on Scandinavian feminism by meeting up with Kvindernes U-Landsudvalg (KULU) based in Copenhagen, an organization that is known to be a central contributor to women’s rights in Copenhagen and internationally. Even though the organization was on holiday officially, the Chair woman Janice Førde and secretariat coordinator Ruth Ejdrup Olsen wereContinue reading “KULU – empowering women in development”

Copenhagen – Impressions

Before I went to Copenhagen, I expected my visit to be rather underwhelming: My google-search made me feel like the city was comparable to any big European city. When I actually arrived here, I was on the contrary, verysurprised. I must admit that Copenhagen took my heart by storm. My prior expectations did come trueContinue reading “Copenhagen – Impressions”
