“Here’s to strong women”

c2sm72iw8aupv9qI don’t know who took this photograph but thank you. It’s of my daughter Clare, with her elder son Theo on her shoulders and her daughter Ellie by her side.

Another photo turns up together with it early this Saturday afternoon, of Clare’s whole family, taken by my friend Patricia Levey-Bennett.

Ellie, Theo, Clare, Finn and Simon Melhuish.

Ellie, Theo, Clare, Finn and Simon Melhuish.

Here is what they have to say.

“I would rather be a robot than a slave.” Ellie Melhuish

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Theo Melhuish

“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.” Clare Melhuish

“Proud Feminist” Finn and Simon Melhuish

There is no corner of the known universe in which I could be prouder of these young people today. My daughter Clare and her beloved family. Well done all of you Melhuishes on the Women’s March. x
