“Our sense of comfort and safety has been shaped by all these females we were surrounded by.”

[Right] “Our family is quite women-dominated; we are three sisters, our grandmother – who is separated from our grandad – and our mum and dad are separated. So we grew up quite confident and independent. Our sense of comfort and safety has been shaped by all these females we were surrounded by.”

[Left] “Our mum was ill sometime ago. And we saw that the support system that we had then, it was ideal. It brought us closer as a family, helped us get through it. Even today, you have caught us on a special day. I have myself been experiencing ill health, and have not been working for a while. So we have taken time out today to walk about together – it’s just me on my own otherwise.”

[Right] “I feel female companionship – having women looking out for you – it does make a difference. We are really close to our dad too, but I have found that it’s just instinctual to gravitate towards mum. We don’t really touch base with our dad that often, but it has nothing to do with how close we are to him; if you’d ask us, we would say we love both our parents equally. ”

[A phone rings and both women laugh on seeing who is calling.]

[Right] “It’s our mum! How opportune.”
