If you thought that the lack of complex, three-dimensional women as protagonists in American film and television was an accident, you’re wrong.
As a matter of fact, one industry pro once said that,”The audience doesn’t want to listen to a bunch of women talking about whatever it is women talk about.”
“Whatever it is women talk about”? You mean stuff like:
- The average velocity of an unladen swallow
It’s almost like women are people with our own thoughts, feelings, interests, and passions.
Hard to believe, I know.
