Shanti’s powerful statement that “In today’s world, women have to be Vikings with mothers’ hearts” embodies the importance of educating girls to be strong, resilient feminists. Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity for us to not only express love and appreciation for our mothers but importantly, to recognise that by working in true partnership with the men in our lives, real and effective change can be accomplished.
Shanti’s call to “lean in at just the right angle” is enlightening. It encourages girls to live true and courageous lives - to ensure that they understand the need to consider diverse points of view and acknowledge the complexities in life, and to face their future with but to also ensure they face their futures with confidence, dignity and pride.
