Watch: five-year-old feminist shares her best life advice

feminist eva.JPG

She stole our hearts as the feminist superhero of Channel 4’s hit show Secret Life of Five Year Olds, so naturally we jumped at the chance to meet karate chopping five-year-old Eva last week.

Dressed in a blue silk cape and with sparkly stars painted down one side of her face, Eva told us how to put the world to rights with her no-nonsense advice on everything from marriage to our careers.

And when it came to dealing with boys who are unkind to you, she recommended a perfectly no-frills approach – “just give him a little slap”.

You can watch the full interview below.

The Powerpuff Girls Emporium is open to the public from Thursday, 1st June until Saturday 3rd June at 15 Bateman Street, Soho, London, W1D 3AQ, open daily from 11:00am until 5:00pm.
