ACLU Wants Federal Investigation Into Hollywood Gender Bias Against Women

Postby LotsoA113 » May 12th, 2015, 12:48 pm

It's been pretty blatant that there's a gender double standard in Hollywood, with female directors having a rougher time in the world of cinema finding opportunities for employment. Thankfully, the American Civil Liberties Union is calling for a federal investigation for rampant gender bias in Hollywood.

Best of luck to them. Words can't describe how much I hope this causes a positive impact and allows new filmmaking voices to flourish.

There's no "bias" against female directors: We gave you every chance. We gave Kathy Bigelow an Oscar. We made Jennifer Lee a billionaire for life.
We even took Penny Marshall seriously. And how did you repay us?--"A League of Their Own".

...FINE. See if we do you any more favors again. :x
