A woman who has inspired me
“I am so proud of everything that has been achieved so far… however, I’m not done yet.” - Phionna McInnes (Founder of Me Too charity in Aberdeen)
My words to share with others
If you have even the smallest of positive impacts on someone else’s life then you’re making a difference. Even if we all make a small difference, these positive changes will add up and we can make the world a better place.
My proudest achievement
From any of the major parties, I am the first woman in the House of Commons to lead on the economy. No women have yet filled either the Chancellor or Shadow Chancellor roles.
My thoughts on feminism and women’s suffrage
In too many places, the ladder is still steeper for women than men. It’s still more difficult to climb up. Those of us who have managed to climb up a few rungs have a responsibility to help make the ladder easier to navigate for the next generation of women. We can only do that if we have women in positions of power, and parliament is an excellent place for change to be born.
