    Sexism Watch: The Hollywood Reporter Directors Roundtable

    This is the picture that has inspired a post I am working on on the movies directed by women in 2011.  Again, I don't know how they could have put this together without including one female director.  While I don't know when the picture was taken, I know for a fact that Lynne ...
