Clare Bowditch Reveals The Three Women Who Inspire Her
Following the launch of her feminist anthem "Woman", Clare Bowditch told 10 daily all about the women she looks up to.
Her powerful music video for "Woman" is a joyous celebration of women being unreservedly who they are, and features women of various ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
Today, in celebration of International Women's Day, Clare Bowditch spilled on the three women who inspire her most.
"I'll start with someone I know -- a gal pal of mine called Jamila Rizvi," she said. "She's a writer and she has such a strong sense of humour, and at the same time she's constantly using her work to advocate for people who aren't heard. Look, if she's not running the country by the time we're old ladies, I don't know what's wrong with Australia!"
"Another woman that I admire very, very much is my 16-year-old daughter, Asha," Clare shared. "I see her in this world with all of this choice and all of this pressure, and I see this generation of young women asking questions that the world needs to be asking. They are the ones who are leading the way in terms of how we construct have positive ideas of masculinity and positive ideas of femininity."
"I have such a soft spot for women who are able to do what she does, which is her art or her advocacy work -- she really is helping to make the world a better place. And she does that through the Trojan horse of comedy and art. I admire her for her guts and her vision -- and she always has fun while doing it," she said.
To support the release of her track "Woman", Clare will be performing in Melbourne, Newcastle and Sydney, with Alice Skye supporting at all shows except Newcastle.
