Guest: Julie Selbo, PhD, Radio/TV/Film Professor at the University of California, Fullerton A recent and much-talked-about cover story for the New York Times Magazine highlighted Hollywood’s gender gap on and off-screen. It detailed blatant sexism in the industry and lots of subtle ways in which women are marginalized and underused in film. The latest Hollywood diversity report out of UCLA gives the hard data - men outnumber women 2 to 1 in lead movie roles, 8 to 1 among film directors and 4 to 1 when it comes to the scriptwriters who give film actors the words to say.
