  • 00:00:00 This YouTube video discusses how, in spite of significant progress made in terms of gender equality, there is still a divide between male and female-oriented entertainment. The reason for this divide is explained, as is the way that it manifests itself in the way that different forms of entertainment are treated. It is argued that, while male-oriented entertainment is seen as more important, high-quality, and cultured, female-oriented entertainment is typically seen as lower quality, frivolous, and oriented towards a female audience. It is suggested that, in order to bridge the divide between male and female interests, greater exposure and understanding of female-oriented entertainment is needed.

Despite this, Hollywood's attitude towards female fans is still one of dismissal and contempt. This is evidenced by the fact that only 25 percent of behind-the-scenes roles on big U.S movies are held by women, and just 17 percent of directors and writers are female. This lack of representation is hurting the industry's image and its ability to attract a wider audience, and it's high time Hollywood catches up.
