We are Maika and Dana from Unboxing Women and this pod is about the gender gap and how women and LGBTQ+ are marginalised in the music and entertainment industry.

It all started after we were called a bitch just for knowing what we want and being assertive about it to the men around us, so if being a knowledgeable woman makes us a bitch, then we are #SUCHABITCH and we’ll show you just what a bitch can do.

Join us as we unbox the underlying truth, discuss taboo topics and bring on guests revealing the dirty little secrets of the music business and what is really going on behind the scenes.
