4 successful female directors get real about gender disparity in Hollywood

Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media SmartBrief | Apr 13, 2017

Directors Julia Ducournau, Ry Russo-Young, Niki Caro and Hope Dickson Leach discuss what it's like to work as women who also happen to be directors in Hollywood in this Q&A with the Los Angeles Times. "I've heard recently from people who are potentially hiring me that they're afraid of me being able to make the budget leap to a bigger budget...It's a very gendered comment because there are a thousand examples of men who make the budget leap from $1 million to $50 million and you just repeatedly never see women able to make those kinds of jumps," said Russo-Young, director of "Before I Fall."
