— Posted by Frank Pasquine

    This is great work. Interesting facts that deal with a topical issue in our society today. The gender equality issue has not dissolved in our society and it is empowering to see women rise up and film directors and producers. It is not that women are not rising to the top, it is that for the longest time industries such as the film industry have been dominated by men and it is now that women are breaking into the field and exercising their creativity.
