International Women’s Day: Pt 7, Chloe Bennet

Happy International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day is, according to this article, “a worldwide event that celebrates women’s achievements – from the political to the social – while calling for gender equality.”

Though why not celebrate with a week instead? Every day, I’ll highlight a woman and her achievements for International Women’s Day and keep this celebration going.




Today is the last day of my week long celebration of International Women’s Day with seven women and their accomplishments. The best part is that, there are hundreds upon thousands of women everywhere worth celebrating.

Today’s woman is actress and singer Chloe Bennet. Chloe was originally born as Chloe Wang in Chicago, Illinois on April 18, 1992. When she was a teenager, she moved to China to live with her grandparents and pursued a singing career.

She released a few singles before moving to Los Angeles. Chloe’s first acting appearance was in 2010 on The Nightlife. A few years later, Chloe was cast as the hacker Skye in 2013 on Agents of SHIELD.

The timeline of Chloe’s character has gone from hacker to SHIELD agent to Inhuman Daisy Johnson aka Quake.

Her role as Daisy Johnson is her biggest role to date and she has thrived as part of the cast.

She also has been outspoken about a lot of Marvel and Asian issues.

International Women’s Day: Pt 2, Lucy Liu

Happy International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day is, according to this article, “a worldwide event that celebrates women’s achievements – from the political to the social – while calling for gender equality.”

Though why not celebrate with a week instead? Every day, I’ll highlight a woman and her achievements for International Women’s Day and keep this celebration going.




Today’s woman is actress Lucy Liu. She’s played some of my favorite characters over the years, both in movies and TV shows.

Lucy was born on December 2, 1968 in Queens, New York. She’d been an actress since 1991 when she appeared on a Beverly Hills, 90210 episode. I first saw her playing Alex Munday in the movie Charlie’s Angels. Alex was the aloof and competent member of the trio, but she showed off her goofy side from time to time.

Lucy also played O-Ren Ishii in Kill Bill, the leader of the Crazy 88s and the Queen of the Tokyo Underworld. As you can imagine, her character was a bad guy (though pretty much everyone in the movie was) and her flashback scene when she first became the Underworld’s ruler was epic.

Lucy’s latest role is as Dr. Joan Watson on Elementary with Jonny Lee Miller playing Sherlock Holmes. I love the bond and partnership Joan has with Sherlock and how together they solve cases.

She’s a great actress and I love seeing her perform. While Lucy Liu has a long and varied filmography, she’s done more than just acting. She is a visual artist and has done charity work for her causes.
