Quote Of The Day: Rose McGowan on Sexism in Hollywood

Posted on the 09 January 2015 by Comicspolitics

Actress and director Rose McGowan accepted an award for Australian filmmaker Jennifer Kent (“Babadook”) and in her speech she asked Hollywood to confront its woman problem and sexism. Because currently only six percent of all directors in the film industry are female. Here is what she said:

“Let’s give the six percent a shot. Cause that represents 50 percent of the audience, of which I am a member. I am not being served and I am not being heard. I ask you to take up the hand of the female director until we no longer say “female director.” It is a unisex term. I am a director. Jennifer Kent is a director. Let’s do smart, let’s bring it. She did. I think she’s thrown down the gauntlet. When they say, “Oh, the box office is down,” it’s perhaps because we don’t need more fucking superhero movies! It’s time. It’s getting a little old and Jennifer is a wonderful, dedicated director and I can’t wait to see what she does next.”
