“Sorry boys, you gotta hire at least one woman director this season! It’s the law!”
I worked at a production company last year, and when I suggested to the (female) head that she might want to add some women to a director list, she said it would be too much of a struggle.
It’s so tragic that Hollywood pushes so hard against equal hiring practices in this day and age. Sad when even a woman won’t include other women on a tentative “ideas list.” I hope I’m able to hire more women directors as I work on beginning my own producing career.
