When Rachel was a 4 year old, she was put on advertisement of lego by Judy Lotas in 1980. The ad’s idea was to promote gender equality by showing that creativity is not a boy thing or a girl thing. But it became quite controversial that Lotas had a tough time to convince people that a girl could also be interested in building things. She had to fight a lot to bring up this ad, as this was her idea to portray gender equality. Lotas stood her ground and was rewarded with one of the most powerful, iconic ads of all time.

According to Lotas, “Boys and girls are different, but not to the exclusion of wanting to create and build. That is not a gender issue.”Well a really inspiring message for all of us.
