Barrister, activist, mother, wife… These are all the hats Amal Clooney wears and now she can add Vogue cover star to the list!
The human rights lawyer covers the magazine’s May 2018 issue as she opens up about her career and personal life.
Read excerpts below:
Speaking to Vogue on her career, Amal says: I remember all the stages in my career where I almost didn’t have enough confidence to try for something, almost didn’t have the guts to follow something I was excited about doing, because I didn’t know anyone else who’d done it or other people made me question it.
On the MeToo Movement: I think because of the brave women who have come forward to tell their stories, the future workplace will be safer for my daughter than it was for people of my generation. We’re in a situation where a predator feels less safe and a professional woman feels more safe, and that’s where we need to be.
On meeting George and their relationship: It felt like the most natural thing in the world. Before that experience, I always hoped there could be love that was overwhelming and didn’t require any weighing or decision-making. It’s the one thing in life that I think is the biggest determinant of happiness, and it’s the thing you have the least control over. Are you going to meet this person? I was 35 when I met him. It wasn’t obvious that it was going to happen for me. And I wasn’t willing or excited about the idea of getting married or having a family in the absence of that.
