“When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’
It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?”
There is an under-representation of our stories, just as there is an under-representation of us in politics and in business and everywhere. That’s what feminism is [to me] right now - the recognition that we are still not equal.
I absolutely love guys. I love hanging out around them - well, not all of them, some of them are dickheads - but you know, the ones that I love, I love.
But you have to recognize that the playing field isn’t even yet, and it does have to be even. And you can still like clothes.”
