The Wives of Westminster is my passion. I enjoy being a creative force behind the platform that can inspire and empower spouses.

I am interested in finding common ground, as opposed to adding to the existing divisions. I wanted to create a digital space where women should not apologize to anyone for the space they are taking.

I feel strongly about the importance of female-centric stories, equal pay, purpose, gender equality, motherhood, and two-career households and I want to be able to talk about all that in one place.

We can all learn from each other

I believe there’s a great value in putting yourself out there and having a global conversation as opposed to having a private conversation behind closed doors. We all draw knowledge from other people’s experiences and we can all learn from each other by talking about the challenges women are going through.

Every spouse, I believe, should be empowered to be their own, authentic self, entitled to their own worldview and opinions. As women in today’s culture, we have an opportunity to be heard and seen. I am an artist, an opera singer, freedom of expression is very important to me.

I believe that the wife of a politician, or any spouse for that matter, does not need to stand in the shadows, that we should not be reduced to voiceless nodding and serve as an accessory for receptions.

We can reach for equality in a way that empowers other spouses ( political or otherwise) to do the same and create a meaningful life they want for themselves.
