Cherie Blair, the wife of former British PM Tony Blair, no longer has the political aspirations as she used to in her youth, but would encourage her children to run for a seat in the Parliament. Cherie Blair was present at a conference about leadership and women, "Leader SHE" in Bucharest last week and spoke for that she would see her role as part of a world network where women leaders support each other.

She said she would not run again for a seat in the British Parliament because her husband was a member of the Parliament for 24 years and that experience is over for her as a wife.

She said she would encourage her children to run for public office because despite what the media reports it is a noble profession.

Asked how she would see her role as the First Lady of Europe, considering that Tony Blair is considered for the job as "EU president", se said one should not speculate in this regard. But she said the role of first ladies in the world was a positive one.

Cherie Blair said that the main advantage of women in developed countries nowadays is that they have economic independence and they can have a statute which otherwise they would not have. She added that she will do everything in her power to support women all over the world.

She said technology and the world we live in now as well as the easy manner people are communicating to each other these days provide the opportunity to have her see herself as part of a network helping women in emerging economies gain financial independence.
