To celebrate I caught up with the hugely inspiring Pearl Lowe - she is just fab!
NAME: PEARL LOWE
Who is your biggest influence?
Danny, my other half.
Who are your ideal female icons?
Women that use their profiles to do great things in the world. Audrey Hepburn, Anita Roddick, Princess Diana, Angelina Jolie
Do you think there's equality between men and women in your workplace?
I think it all depends on where you work. When I was in a band, I felt as though I didn’t have a say in anything. Yet the boys in my band did, as it was such a male dominated industry. But now I’m designing, I don’t come across that many men, so I do see it.
Do you think a female Prime Minister or President would be any different than a male?
Why and how? I think it’s about strength. If there is a strong woman in power, it doesn’t make a difference if she is a woman.
Do you think it's important to have an International Women's Day?
I think it’s always a good thing to celebrate women, as women are so wonderful.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I don’t want to ever grow up!
