Katie Couric recently sat down with Sophie Grégoire Trudeau (40), wife of newly elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (44). Among the topics discussed is Sophie’s dedicated work in bringing attention to issues facing women and girls. “We still face social injustice, violence. We are denied most basic rights because we are women, and to me that is completely unacceptable,” she said. She is particularly passionate about self-esteem and body-image issues. “I came out years ago saying I suffered from eating disorders. Eating disorders are like any other compulsion or mental illness. I had to use my voice to make a difference,” she tells Couric.
