International Women’s Day

“I don’t intend to breastfeed the nation. I plan to lead it.”
– Vigdís Finnbogadóttir


Inspired hugely by the quote from Iceland’s first female President, I asked other notable women whom I know and respect for a few words to think about on Women’s Day. Here they are from Sigourney Weaver and Diane Von Furstenberg to my daughter Domino, who has, as we see here, always held my hands in hers.
