Women & Hollywood is featured in Ellen Snortland’s column in the Pasadena Weekly.

I’ve been a fan of two women in particular who keep track of women and Hollywood. Melissa Silverstein publishes a weekly newsletter, “Women and Hollywood,” and blogs about the simply sorry statistics for females on and behind the screen (http://womenandhollywood.com/). I am also grateful for the intrepid work of Dr. Martha Lauzen, executive director of the Center for Study of Women in TV and Film at San Diego State University. Silverstein writes about Lauzen’s statistics, which are the stuff of employment horror for women.
