I saw your video on women in film and resented some of the comments made. Yes women may not be getting a fair go but it's also down to the fact that there just aren't enough women trying. Films made by men are going to be told through the eyes of a male protagonist because that's what the directors vision is and he can't help that. Just the same as films directed by women will feature strong women leads (Zero Dark Thirty) but I honestly think that women have never been stronger in films.

I’m sorry, this ask sounds like a certain conclusion in a certain episode of a certain youtube documentary. It is not that there aren’t enough women trying. There are SO MANY WOMEN TRYING. There are SO MANY WOMEN DOING AMAZING WORK. But they do not have the support or even the equal playing field of the working environment in which they are trying to operate. You just have to read the comments of the video to see that.

This ask doesn’t just offend me as a woman, but as a woman who studied media and who is TRYING to get into film.

More than half of my graduating media studies class was made up of women. When I studied overseas in England, my media and film classes were mostly made up of women. I know women who are out in New York and California and are looking to work in film. Don’t even assume for a second women aren’t trying.

Also, the script I’m writing is from the perspective of a 15 year old boy. I’m pretty sure a male director/writer can write from the perspective of a woman if they tried really, really hard.

23 women show us their favorite positions

When reality television star and fashion blogger Lauren Conrad was asked what her “favorite position” was on a live radio program a while back, the women listening held their breath. Although we take great pride in the work that we do, most of us could relate to being undermined and belittled publicly at work. When Conrad cleverly retorted “CEO,” it was hard not to aggressively high-five our laptop and mobile devices. The words “hell” and “yeah” could be heard all across the nation.
