“We should look at how we tend to encourage boys to play with cars and girls with dolls,” she said at the global summit of the International Transport Forum (ITF) taking place in Leipzig this week.

“Cars are not just for boys. We should encourage this approach also at school level. There must be platforms and scholarships, for instance, to empower women in science, technology, mathematics and clean energy.”
