Description

Amanda de Cadenet is a force to be reckoned with. She’s had more  noteworthy careers than most people achieve in a lifetime. Amanda began  her career in television at the age of 15. Not for the stardom or the  glamour, but out of pure necessity to support herself. The show, in  which she and other presenters interviewed bands such as Nirvana and  Oasis, proved to be a hit. While Amanda had found success, by the age of  22 she was ready for a change, and moved to L.A. to work as a  photographer.


After experiencing firsthand the frustration of  being passed over time and again for photography jobs which she was  qualified for, Amanda began to produce and interview women on her own  show, “The Conversation.” “I’m always interested in peoples’ really low  moments, because I want to know how they came back from it. Because  we’re all going to have them, no one’s exempt. My question has always  been, ‘well how did you get up off the ground one more time? How did you  make it through that?’ Because that’s ultimately what we have to share  on the other side of it.”


Continuing on her quest to promote  intersectional gender equality Amanda has also spearheaded the #girlgaze  movement, encouraging female-identifying individuals to share their  unique point of view under that hashtag in the hopes of illuminating the  multifaceted jewel that is the female point of view.
