A message from the Editor
Resonate has come a long way since we began just shy of 8 months ago but none of it would be possible without the support of the incredible women we have interviewed.
In an ideal world, we shouldn’t need a specific day to appreciate women – they should be cherished 365 days of the year – but regressive gender imbalances continue to plague our society. Consequently, we must all stand together in solidarity and fight for equality and bring these issues to light.
At Resonate we fight against discrimination towards the global East Asian community. Whether it be in film, television or even in everyday life, we put a spotlight on these incidents so we can battle against discrimination and strengthen our global community. However, we also hold a zero-tolerance stance against any form of discrimination including that of gender.
It remains shocking and somewhat disturbing that gender imbalances prevail as blatantly as they do today. No woman (or man for that matter) should ever be marginalised due to their ethnicity, class, sexuality or disability. International Women’s Day reminds us that there are women around the world who are continue to be subjected to imbalances and discrimination that should be long-outdated – it’s up to us to stand together to forge a better working world.
For us at Resonate, we look back at all of the fantastic women we’ve had the honour of interviewing since we began back in mid-2016. Each of these incredible women contribute invaluably to our society in their own respective fields and their strength serves as a testament to the ridiculousness of the existence of gender inequality.
