Amanda de Cadenet: Girlgazing Her Way Through the Glass Ceiling
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.
