Representation of women as guests experts is important to me, because it demonstrates that we, women, not only have an expert opinion, but are also willing to tell it to the public.

Representation of female guests experts is important to me because I have a responsibility to my profession… I choose female guests experts because I don’t want to create new injustices.
