Why did you decide to paint this particular Worldmapper map?

Annegret Poschlep
Dieses Bild, Map Nr.202 habe ich ausgewählt, weil ich es sehr wichtig finde, daß alle Mädchen dieser Erde eine solide Ausbildung erhalten, um eine gute Basis für ihr ganzes Leben zu haben, unabhängig wie dieses verläuft. Ich habe es bereits bei meinen eigenen Kindern so praktiziert, und unsere Tochter hatte die gleichen Voraussetzungen wie unser Sohn beim Start in ihr eigenes Leben.
(I chose this picture because I find it very important that all girls on this planet have a solid education so that they have a good basis for their whole life; regardless of how each path looks in detail. I have practised this with my own children, and my daughter had the same start position for her life as my son.)
