Terry’s Picks: Vicious Cycle, #BYkids PSA, Questionable Casting

Vicious Cycle: The LA Times published a great piece on how “Hollywood’s man problem may be a matter of simple math,” taking an in-depth statistical look at Hollywood’s gender imbalance and how it paves the way for discrimination and harassment. 

#BYkids PSA: BYkids, a global movement that uses storytelling through film to inform, engage and inspire action and is run by NYWIFT member Holly Carter, created a powerful new PSA called “Think Before You Stereotype.”

Questionable Casting: Refinery29 offers a slideshow of 22 times women were barely older than the actors who played their children, illustrating just how ridiculous age discrimination against women on screen can get.
