Kate has spent the last 10 years working on gender issues and championing the rights of girls all over the world. Prior to joining The Girls' Network Kate worked for Girls Not Brides conducting research and policy analysis on the issue of child marriage. She holds a degree in Politics from the University of Bristol and an MSc in International Development.

In her spare time she looks after her tiny tyrant of a toddler and her mischievous dog Hector.

Her dream female mentor would be the New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern because she seems so down to earth and handles motherhood while running a country with such grace.
