Personal Quote:

...we came from backgrounds where gender roles were really strong. My dad was a truck driver and my mum worked and had to look after the kids and do all the housework. That was totally accepted and even today if I see my dad wash a dish it makes me really uncomfortable. See more »


Grew up in Canberra, ACT, Australia.
