Director. Writer. Filmmaker.






As a veteran woman director in Hollywood, I've learned about gender disparity the hard way. For several decades I've been writing and speaking about the relevance of not just employment equity, but of the global impact of having female voices behind the camera. As former chair of the Women's Steering Committee of the Director's Guild of America, and a former professor of directing at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, I'm a "go-to" source regarding gender inclusion in the film industry. You can follow me on Twitter @WomenCallAction.

I'm delighted to have been invited to join the 2018 #50WomenCan Change the World in Media & Entertainment Cohorts, & to have been interviewed in the Sundance selected HALF THE PICTURE, & several other documentaries about women directors.
