Engaging for equal opportunities – in any sphere of life and profession – has been a topic close to my heart since I was a teenager. Women are more than half the world, they are smart, well-educated and can do everything just as well as men, sometimes even better. I stand up for improving the situation of all women and therefore also women in law because this is simple an issue of justice!
