“It seems obvious to have to say this, but professionals deserve to be judged by their work alone. Right? To consider them based on their gender would be discriminatory. However, it seems that as a culture we haven’t escaped identifying women first by their gender identity, which for women has become closely associated to personal concerns like style, looks, and romantic relationships.

Hollywood is not the only place this happens. Check out what happens when male athletes are asked the same questions female athletes are asked…”

Cady McClain’s New Documentary “Seeing is Believing: Women Direct”
by Cady McClain as interviewed by Heidi Honeycutt for Film Inquiry


“All this to say: just because these filmmakers are of the female gender doesn’t mean that the stories they tell are “soft and flowery,” or about “love and romance.” Not in the least. These artists are digging into aspects  of the female gender that, when I see and hear them revealed, make me want to cry out of sheer gratitude. No matter which way you slice it, “soft stories for women” are what we’ve been seeing for so many years.  It’s depressing to be a woman and only see a few story options for your entire psyche to dance through while male stories seem to traverse endless options. I think it is a wrong idea that women can only tell “soft stories.” It is an erroneous cliche that is partly to blame for women being kept out of the marketplace.”
