Female filmmaker speaks out on industry's lack of gender equality
She believes one way to combat that is to have more women in positions of power.
Filmmaker and entertainment attorney Katherine Pfost spoke out Tuesday about the lack of gender equality in today's film industry.
She will later speak at the monthly meeting of Hawaii Women in Filmmaking and discuss everything from unequal pay and hiring to sexual harassment in the workplace.
With more and more cases of sexual harassment in the American media industry coming to light, Pfost believes one way to combat that is to have more women in positions of power. She says if you take a look at the current list of the top grossing films over the past decade, you'll find there is only one female filmmaker for every? 24 male filmmakers.
