"No matter how many giant hit movies come out starring female characters, there still is [a feeling of] 'Yeah, yeah, but what if that's a one-off?'" Academy Award-winning actor Geena Davis says in this "Today Show" interview, which also included Academy Award-nominated editor Joi McMillon, director Patty Jenkins and Brit Marling, who all spoke to the ongoing divide between men and women behind the camera.
