Gender equality has been a battle for many years, especially in the working world. Having a personal interest in the topic and after writing my dissertation on ‘The Glass Ceiling’, I too have seen the numbers and it’s evident that there is still a lot of work to be done. Equality has been brought even further to the forefront of the online community recently thanks to Emma Watson and the #heforshe campaign. Her speech at the UN last September was once of the most empowering things I have ever seen. She did great justice to everyone who has fought and is fighting for equality.


Another campaign that I came across recently was one that coincided with International Women’s Day last Sunday. The Clinton Foundation (an initiative by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton) alongside Droga5 launched the campaign that highlights that there is still a gap in gender equality. They teamed up with Unilever, iHeartMedia, Beats by Dre, Simon & Schuster, Kate Spade, the New York City Ballet, Under Armour, H&M, Zalla Pilates, Diane von Furstenberg, Snapchat and Condé Nast and created a campaign that visually wiped women away from adverts, magazines, billboards in and around New York. A powerful reminder that women ‘still aren’t there’ when it comes to equality.


They have my full support, do they have yours?

"Rising were invaluable during the release of my last studio album DRIVE. For a period of about six months around the release, hardly a day went by without me speaking to Seb or Avery about every single aspect of the release, with their input going far beyond what I expected, covering many more areas than just digital management, and never getting annoyed at my multiple phone calls and emails about every aspect of the project. On release day, we nailed the elusive #1 spot on the US iTunes Dance chart and it’s no exaggeration to say without Rising, I don’t think that would have happened. Great company, great people."
