Video clip: Jane says that she has never felt discriminated against. She has not applied for some jobs because they are not things she has wanted to do.

I don’t think I’ve ever, I’ve never felt discriminated against. I think if I haven’t gone for something, well there’s nothing I haven’t gone for that I think I should have done. If there’s nothing I haven’t gone for it’s because I decided I didn’t want to, not because I thought I couldn’t do it or that I would be discriminated against. It’s because I’ve sat down and said, “I don’t want to go for that. That’s not what I want to do.” And that’s not through lack of confidence. It’s just a conscious decision that that’s not what I wanted to do.
