#MeToo and gender inequality at Cannes

Hosted by

Italian actress and director Asia Argento gave a speech at the Cannes film festival on Saturday, saying Harvey Weinstein raped her at Cannes in 1997. She called the festival his hunting ground. A week before, 82 women rallied on the red carpet to protest gender inequality in the film industry - 82 because since the first Cannes festival in 1946, only 82 movies by female directors have been selected to compete -- compared to more than 1600 films by male directors.
