Anecdotal evidence. Always the best.

Yes, there's lots behind the scenes, organising callsheets, casting, make up, hair, costuming. They're already part of the fabric of filmmaking. There has been no active campaign against having female directors. Female directors have existed since the dawn of film.
When you make up a big part of Hollywood, but only a small fraction of the highest paying jobs behind the camera, there is a massive problem.

Again, explain this:

https://www.theguardian.com/film/201...male-directors

Its your business, you should understand Variety doesn't report on BS.

This is my industry. I'm just calling ******** on the ******** that needs to be called upon. Again, I want more women directing. But again, this was the wrong way to go about it.

Also, for the record? I'm so ****ing excited for Wonder Woman - Patty Jenkins will help show young girls they can make movies - especially action movies. I wanted that with Twilight when Catherine Hardwicke directed, but it just didn't happen, it seems. Would you also like me to wax lyrical about Tank Girl's Rachel Talalay? Who has directed episodes of Doctor Who and The Flash on the CW? Or what about Karyn Kusama, director of Girlfight, Jennifer's Body, Aeon Flux and more recently a segment in the female anthology film XX?

I pay attention. I know my **** because I did a film course (taking four years). We talked at length about gender in the film industry, especially with my female classmate.

And you know what? Two years later the new class was all females bar one male.
Well some are. But most do have the narrow minded view that it isn't women's work. They don't gravitate towards it and thus probably aren't the best people for the job.

And knowing your stuff, probably means you should know the statics I posted above.

By the way, I am a fan of how you edit out chunks of post you quote. I can't imagine why...

I love how you just negate the biased dictionary entry and divert onto an unrelated tangent. Perfect argument-losing strategy.

Wow, that's incredibly sexist.

You do realize your logic people have always used to defend sexism? They gravitate towards it, but they have a much harder time getting hired because the industry is dominated by white men. I would know, I'm an actor working in NYC. I'm a white dude myself, and I realize how lopsided the industry is.

Luckily, no one said it doesn't matter, so do try not to put words in anyone's mouth again. Thanks.

A full season of only female directors. A step in the right direction.

I'm wondering if the show will have a noticeable increase in its budget.

And do you think it will debut in March or April?

I think its budget will increase in the same range the second season of Daredevil did.
