Female Descriptions in Screenplays

Hosted by

A new Twitter feed highlights some of the sexist ways female characters are described in screenplays. We the audience aren’t privy to these, but they’re essential in guiding the casting process as well as what kind of stories get greenlit. We talk to a writer who’s a fan of the Twitter feed, and thinks it contains lessons for the industry and moviegoers alike.
