Major Hollywood film and TV studios have long been criticized for failing to create a level playing field for women. While insiders and studies have highlighted the entertainment industry’s one-sided hiring practices in recent months and years, now the complainants have found an ally.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California and the national ACLU Women’s Rights Project said Tuesday they will ask federal and California civil rights agencies to investigate a “systemic failure” to hire female directors in film and television.
The New York Times reports those accused of gender discrimination include Hollywood’s major studios, networks and talent agencies, and all could potentially face litigagation, for what the ACLU described as widespread and intentional discrimination.
