Ep 20 - YES YOU CAN. A story to boost gender equality with Cheryl Rickman

[activecampaign form=15]I stumbled on Cheryl thanks to Tanya & Claire and I had straight away a business crush on her and knew I had to have her on the podcast.

After realizing that she couldn't get what her daughter wanted T-shirt-wise, she took matters into in her own hands and created a fun, colorful and positive range of t-shirts that let girls show their love of dinosaurs and pirates. Now she taking the mission even further and is launching a Kickstarter campaign to get a book out to challenge cliches and stereotypes around what boys and girls can do.
