When I was growing up, apart from the obvious anatomy, I never realised I was different from a man, and I certainly never considered myself any less capable than a man.
As a child I saw my mum doing the wallpapering, the painting and decorating, I'd heard her talk of roofing a house and fixing a car - none of which you'd ever find my step-dad doing.
She'd also cook and clean.
At school I excelled academically. I had no reason to think that I was any less intelligent than the boys, especially when my grades and exam results were higher than most of theirs.
In fact I never realised that as a woman, I would ever have been considered less able in any area of my life, just because I was a woman.
