The best way to get more women on television and in movies is to get more women behind the scenes. There might be less sexism today but at the end of the day people hire who they know and who is like them so men will tend to hire men and when mostly men are in charge, you’re just going to get more men! Give some ladies some power and now we’re talking equality, kiddos. Zooey Deschanel and HelloGiggles co-founder, Sophia Rossi have started their own television production company.
