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 interviewed in the Sundance selected doc, HALF THE PICTURE, along with fellow directors Ava DuVernay, Kim Peirce, Jill Soloway, Catherine Hardwicke, and Lena Dunham.
