*International women’s day series *
19:00 . 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.
