Three questions to Henning Mankell

RealStars has three new answers, this time from Henning Mankell. We met him recently at the UNICEF conference about human trafficking where he was one of the speakers.

Profession: Writer and director at Teatro Avenida in Maputo

What do you think is important in life?

To believe that it must be possible to create a better world than the one we are living in today. I believe that for children to have a better future I must want other children to have the same.

2. What would you like to see more of in the society?

Solidarity. It is a word that sounds cliché. But the term still has the same value as it always has. My life cannot be better if other people’s lives aren’t.

3. Does the term ”Fair Sex” have the status it deserves in the society and what challenges do you see?

Fair Sex. It’s a long way to get there. Sexuality in Sweden and all around the world is characterized by a male perspective which actually applies to almost everything. I can believe in a society where sexuality is the greatest joy on equal terms.
