Women have brains and uteruses, and are able to use both.

Guardian interview, 11 April 2010


I think the term feminist is scary for women, because it means that you're extreme in some way, and I'm not extreme in any way, although I do passionately believe that a woman's role within any organisation is to assist and help other women.

Guardian interview, 11 April 2010


75% of my management team are women.

Said to a player at Birmingham Football Club who observed 'I can see your tits in that shirt', and who was sold soon after.
