It is one of the best places in the world to be a woman, with a narrow gender pay gap, equal employment rights, universal nursery care, and some of the happiest female retirees on the planet.

So it comes as a surprise to find, in a global survey of attitudes towards gender, equal rights and the #MeToo movement, that Denmark is one of the least feminist countries in the developed world.

The poll, conducted by the YouGov-Cambridge Globalism Project of more than 25,000 people in 23 major countries, found that just one in six Danes consider themselves a feminist, a third said that wolf whistling at women in the street was acceptable, and two in five had an unfavourable view of the #MeToo movement.

“It’s a difficult question. What is a modern feminist?” muses Helene Frost Hansen, a 37-year-old accountant, as she bites into her sandwich outside her office on Copenhagen’s City Hall Square. “I don’t want to be equal in all senses.”

According to the data, only a quarter of Danish women consider themselves feminists, a stark contrast to neighbouring Sweden, where 46% do, and a smaller share even than in countries like Italy, Spain and the UK, which otherwise lag far behind Denmark on gender equality. In fact, more Danish women are happy to be wolf whistled than called a feminist, according to the survey. Fully one third say it is acceptable, the highest proportion than in any country other than Nigeria. “I don’t mind it so long as it’s done in a nice way,” says Hansen. “I see it as a compliment, actually,” she says. “A lot of Danish women say that they would like men to to be more like in southern Europe and tell you how nice you look”.

“We have had a culture where what you say isn’t racist or sexist if you don’t intend it to be,” she explains. “You can grab a woman, but so long as you did it because it was ‘fun’, then culturally we tend to think it’s not that bad.”

And the least feminist nation in the world is... Denmark?

The women are happy there because it's ok for men to tell them they're pretty. The woman in the article says she likes being whistled at.

This is why Leftist cannot be happy.

One cannot be happy if they believe they are constantly a victim.

It simply doesn't work like that.
I'm totally confused. Are the Danish the leftists? I would assume so. But they ARE happy.

Who can't be happy?

Who are the leftists in your theory? American women? I don't think Americans are further left than Danes.

Explain thyself.

Feminism is clearly a Leftist thing.

The article says many women in Denmark do not subscribe to this insanity.

Of course they would be happier.

With feminism, they reject their femininity, the essence of who God made them to be. The feminists all want to be more like men.

Just look at some of them. Some of them even get guy haircuts, but they call them butch haircuts. And like you said, the seem miserable.

Denmark is one of the most progressive places on earth. By your standards theyre further left than Che Guevara at a pride parade.

In what universe is Denmark not on your boys' "leftist" list?
