Sexism in Hollywood is a very prevalent subject. A great article was just published on that very subject matter. It’s a great read.
It’s written by Maureen Dowd, who’s a columnist for the New York Times.
Check it out here:
A word on the subject: It seems men in Hollywood (similar to all men really) can’t get something through their tiny brains: women are ubiquitous. They’re in offices, they’re CEO’s, he’ll they’re even directing and writing movies. (Shocking I know). I don’t know why that’s such a difficult concept to grasp for men. We’ve had a black male president, we’ve had women run for presidency, so I’m not sure why they can’t accept the work of a woman. I’ll give you my opinion. I think they’re scared. Men are intimidated by a hardworking woman who knows what she wants. Because deep down men are these fearful creatures who subconsciously fear the wrath of their mothers. (Just analyzing here). Women have a different perspective from men, so shouldn’t that be refreshing in the entertainment business? You’d think so, but our world is still progressing a tiny bit at a time. We’re moving in slow motion, and we need to catch up. It’s 2015 and women are still getting paid less than men for the same jobs. You know what I say to that? Fuck you!! *Middle finger* It’s sickening that this is still an ongoing thing. The end.
