The experience was a big eye opener; an insight into a culture that felt so similar and yet so different to the one in which I was raised in the UK. I developed a deep sense of respect and admiration for the women there and a sense of guilt about the ‘freedom’ with which I had grown up, but which they had to fight for.“
