Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is known for being an ardent supporter of gender equality, which he proved when he made a special effort for gender parity with his cabinet. And, he is a self-proclaimed feminist, too.

In the recent interview with Vox, he talked about feminism, fatherhood, and much more to the Vox correspondent Elizabeth Plank.

“I talk about the fact that I’m a feminist as often as I can, and every time I do it gets a huge reaction, and media reacts, and the Twitterverse explodes, and things like that because here I am saying I’m a feminist.I will keep saying that until there is no more reaction to that when I say it because that’s where we want to get to. If you’re a progressive, you really should be a feminist because it’s about equality, it’s about respect, it’s about making the best of the world we have.”

Trudeau also spoke of how his wife, Sophie, highlights the importance of inculcating the sense of gender equality upon his sons.

“How are you training your sons to be focused on women’s rights and women’s opportunities the way you’re focused on telling your daughter that she can be anything? That for me was a really important wake-up.”

Men, please take notes!

He also talked about the difficulties to balance the role of a father while being the leader of a nation.

“Throughout I just sort of remember, look, I’m in politics not in spite of the fact that I have kids, but because of the fact that I have kids.”
