QUESTION: What do you believe will be the biggest challenge for the generation of women behind you?
To be free to be who you are. You don’t have to be a rich business woman in a suit if you want to work at home or raise children, you don’t have to stay at home if you want to be an engineer, a doctor, a firefighter, a police officer, a business owner, a waitress, or anything you desire. Also, our work does not have to define us. Life and identity is a lot more complex than a job, a family, or a gender.
