Do you have inspirational quotes?
My Nana used to say “well you just had to get on with it”, when talking about difficult times of her life. When things are tough, I think if she could do it, I can!
What do you think is the biggest issue facing women today?
Biggest issue facing women today - gender equality, We need to get full equal rights in all walks of life. We should celebrate and embrace the difference between women and men, and use our different skills to help each other.
We also need to nurture gender equality from birth onwards in our own family lives. Brush aside stereotypes like “boys don’t cry” and have to be big and strong, and finally, treat children equally.
What advice do you have for other women?
Be yourself, don’t try to be a version of someone else. I think as you get older you realise it’s ok to do things your way.
Do you think it’s important to have International Women’s day and why?
Yes, to highlight areas of the world where women are 2nd class citizens...to demand better treatment for women and to highlight the problem of abuse.
