When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. “This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar” she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’ It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?

I cannot explain my love for Sandi Toksvig. Randomly, one of her daughters was in my class at secondary school.

We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. We have the power to imagine better.

it’s been exactly 10 years since Rachel got off that plane and I’m still not over it.
