What women do you admire or have most influenced you?

It's International Women's Day and we are asking the team what women they most admire or who have influenced their life in some way. Reflecting on the women's marches* earlier this year, we hope that in 2017 we see change and that women all around the world can achieve the same success, command the same salaries and live equal lives comparative to their male counterparts. Here's what the team had to say: Nick "My Sister because she's so strong. Even though she's my little Sister she's way tougher than me." Katie "I couldn't pick just one!
