ACLU to Meet With Government Agencies to Discuss Bias Against Women Directors

ACLU to Meet With Government Agencies to Discuss Bias Against Women Directors

Here’s some progress: The ACLU has announced that it will meet next month with the three government agencies it asked to investigate gender discrimination in the film and TV industries.  

Melissa Goodman, director of the LGBTQ, Gender & Reproductive Justice Project at the ACLU of Southern California, stated that her team will meet with the US Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing to discuss systematic bias against women directors

The meeting would be the step in the right direction toward the ACLU’s aim of getting those federal and state agencies to investigate Hollywood’s possibly illegal employment practices and to formulate solutions involving governmental oversight.

The ACLU told Women and Hollywood that next month’s meeting is an “encouraging first step.”
