My friend wrote this fantastic blog about sexism in Hollywood that you all should read.
I find that sexism burns quietly but steadily here. It's not overt, it's not people telling you that you won't succeed, it's not graphic objectification. It's people saying "female-driven" as if it's a genre when male-driven projects are simply "movies" or "shows." It's writing off the Sex and the City movie as a fluke. It's the refusal to buy R-rated movies with female leads. It's that 7% of the DGA is female. It's Oscar-winning movies with 1 or 0 female characters. It's "strong" female characters who are sassy and tough but wear tight leather and need men to save them. It's the fact that men see stories about women and label them as stories about women but women see stories about men and just consider them stories.
It just makes me mad.
