She said, [He] made it very clear I was in the way — who decided I would be allowed to speak on our program when he pointed at me. Imagine a seventy-year-old man pointing his finger at you; that’s the sign I was allowed to ask a question. What an honour to be given a privilege to be allowed to do my job: with a point.”
