Speaking on intellectual women being concerned about their looks she says:
“It’s important to challenge the idea that an intellectual woman cannot possibly like fashion. There are intelligent women all over the world who like fashion, but they feel the pressure to pretend otherwise because they want to be taken seriously by a mainstream world that has decided that intelligent women cannot possibly like fashion. A woman does not have to be one or the other. She can be both.”

On feminism she says;
“We have been socialised to think of power as male. So when a woman seeks power or has power, we judge her very harshly. We look for a reason to bring her down.”
