Beside Not Behind - INT'L WOMENS DAY


Written, shot, edited and released in a 3-week time span, #BesideNotBehind plays on the old saying that “Behind every great man is a great woman”. Instead of "behind" we believe women stand equally "beside" men. So that regardless of gender we are supporting each other equally.
