(IWD #8) The one who ‘could have it all’

Catherine MEP


International women’s day series 8/8 *

19:00 . ‘Have you ever watched Civilisation ? It’s incredible. You get to watch a beautifully made documentary, while discovering art pieces– all of this narrated by the amazing Kenneth Clark. It has history, politics, philosophy and some wonderful visuals in it. I mean, it sounds fantastic doesn’t it?

(Catherine is a member of the European Parliament and until recently was the only woman representing Scotland at the European Parliament.)

I encourage women to engage more in politics. A lot of people say it is ‘too difficult’ for women: that they can feel overwhelmed.

That may be true, since we juggle between all these identities: being a daughter, a mum, a sister, a politician, add *anything else you’d like to be*. The thing is though: we can do it all. Don’t let anybody tell you that you cannot do it – whatever it is you want to do.

Because you can.’
