How has that worked out for Hollywood to date? The number of women in movies has declined in recent years.

And just because a movie isn't sexist doesn't mean it's a good movie and vice versa.

But we shouldn't have to force change. Any right thinking person must know that these movies should be more representative. I don't believe that writers sit around a table and say, 'There are too many women in this script.' I think their default setting for any supporting character is male and making them female is usually an afterthought. We just have to make them more aware of what they're doing.
