"Yes, I do see myself as a feminist. I think this word has been demonised over time but really, at the core, feminism is the belief in equal rights for women. This is important to me as a woman and I have a daughter. I’ve witnessed many changes and advancements, there has been a lot of progress in the fight for equality but I still think there is a long journey ahead. Until we start to view women as equals to men, and it is reflected in the way we write our policies, laws and govern, there is a need to fight for these rights."
