A hashtag on Twitter is helping highlight women working in Hollywood and encouraging the industry to take note of them.
When Women and Hollywood unveiled their totally depressing infographic about the lack of women directors hired by major studios recently, most people weren't all that surprised. The information revealed that by and large, the major Hollywood studios (the Big 6 as they are known) are not hiring women to helm major releases. But after a few ragey comments on the Internet and a solemn vow to start renting more films made by women, what else is there to do? After all, we're up against some of the biggest money making corporations in the world—Sony, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Paramount, Warner Bros and Universal.
