(VIDEO) Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the Amendment of the Danish Constitution.

On Friday, June 5, 2015, Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark accompanied by Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, Her Royal Highness Princess Benedikte of Denmark, Their Royal Highnesses Prince Joachim and Princess Marie of Denmark celebrated the 100th anniversary of the amendment of the Danish Constitution at Christiansborg Slot in Copenhagen.

According to the website, 100 Året, the amendment of the Danish Constitution:

“…on the 5th of June 1915 gave Danish women the right to vote and stand for election.

Though much has happened since 1915, and large steps have been taken in regards to equality between women and men, the debate on equality, democracy and democratic participation is as important and current as ever. The debate today is not only about the right to vote and securing democratic rights, it is also about everyday life – work, spare time, and family.

The 100th anniversary helps to remind us that we must continue to strengthen and develop our democratic system. Where the gender equality debate in Denmark historically began as a fight for women’s basic rights, today it is about women and men’s equal opportunities to influence their own lives and participate in the society. This in turn creates a democratic society where all human resources are put into play.”
