This investigative analysis of gender disparity in Hollywood features accounts from well-known artists, directors, and executives in the industry. The film dives into Hollywood history, from the silent era of film when women had significant opportunities, up until the recent lawsuits filed by female members of the DGA. Weighing in on the issue is a star-studded roster of Hollywood’s leading actresses, including Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson, Reese Witherspoon, and Geena Davis, who starred in the trail-blazing Thelma & Louise in 1991 and wondered why its success didn’t change things for women in Hollywood. She founded the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which conducts statistical research to track the percentage of women’s roles in films, demonstrating proof that women are under-represented on the screen and behind it.
