American actress, producer and social activist Jane Fonda said that the rights of women filmmakers are being infringed in Hollywood and called for the fight against sexism.
The actress believes that all the problems are connected with the fact that the studios are run by men who seek to hire people like themselves. Often, serious projects are given to young, inexperienced male directors, and not to women who already have productions behind them.
Fonda believes that there are many women in the American film industry who are capable of producing serious films, not films for easy viewing. As an example, the actress cited the work of Katherine Bigelow "The Hurt Locker". She made a movie for real men and won an Oscar for it. At the same time, her husband James Cameron introduced the world to "Titanic" - a picture that is popular with women.
Jane Fonda has been acting in films since 1960, her debut was the picture "Big Story". She later starred in the films Barbarella, They Shoot Horses, Don't They ?, Klute, Julia and Homecoming. The actress has won two Academy Awards.
