The Women Who Are Making A Difference In Animation | moviepilot.com

It does sound ridiculous now, but at the end of last year, Deadline was reporting that according to the Animation Guild, 23.2% of their union jobs were held by women. Granted, that’s an increase from the 20.6% measured 18 months earlier, but it’s still below a quarter of the employees registered with the Guild. Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter is holding animation roundtables on ethnic and female stereotypes with exactly seven white men (where’s Snow White, may I ask?).

How is this even a reality?  In this day in age why is there still so much discussion about what women vs men can do?  And why does it translate into real world consequences like not being able to get a job or acquire financing for a film?  It’s so stupid.

Can we not just simply judge merit based upon skill and qualifications and leave all this dumb issues like age, race, gender, sexuality, etc, etc, etc, out of it?

Come on people – I know you’re smarter than this.

Now act like it.
