Resistance to potentially problematic behaviors, narratives, structures and incidents has a far reaching impact on the social fabric of society. The first step towards shaking the power structures in the history always started with a resistant word. The current paper attends to the resistant narratives/efforts and intends to provide a platform to assist, guide and channelize the resistance efforts. This would be accomplished by introducing the concept of resistance in this paper and demonstrating its parallel link to power and dominance. Further the paper would propose certain tools, skills and considerations to augment the resistant efforts and improve their effectiveness against the suppressing apparatuses.
