Help me find a specific article/quote about sexism in the movie industry!
June 10, 2012 6:48 PM   Subscribe

I recently read an article that contained a quote from someone in the movie industry about how it isn't currently worthwhile, or a priority, to make movies for a female audience/from a female perspective/ something along those lines. I have tried to find the associated article, but searching "movie industry women sexism" isn't very successful. I think I may have read the article at Jezebel. I may have even found it here. But I totally can't find it now. Help!

Is this the article you are referring to?

It was Warner Bros. President of Production Jeff Robinov. Here's the Jezebel link, but the story was originally reported by Nikk Finke at Deadline. Google "Jeff Robinov Women" for fallout and commentary.

The first thing I thought of when I read your description was this post from Hathor Legacy.

“We are no longer doing movies with women in the lead”. (Warner Bros, 2007)

You can see the movies they've produced or distributed here. Only a few female-led movies in recent years, from what I can tell: Sucker Punch, Red Riding Hood, Due Date, SATC 2, The Blind Side. But hey, they distributed Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve-- those are worth ten apiece, right?
