Read Anrui’s answer here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5531330

The main reason why we don't teach "hen" is because it isn't really accepted by all Swedes. I use it a lot (most of my friends do too) and I believe that there is a need for "hen".

But also it clearly says she here, so it wouldn't make sense to translate it as hen. We don't allow you to ”translate” boy as child either.

The pronunciation of sked sounds like fwed. Is that intentional?
