“I have the most perfect partner in my life. I’ve never met a male like my husband, who [believes] any woman is naturally his equal,” Zoe says of her husband.

So, passing these lessons on to their children seem only natural for Zoe and her husband.

Zoe adds, “I don’t want my kids to look at women like, ‘Oh, god, they’re so annoying! They always come with structure’.”
