Film Industry doesn’t allow women to succeed, says ex-Sony Pictures chief

London : Amy Pascal, after quitting her position as a co-chair of Sony Pictures, claimed that the film industry has “geared for women to fail.”

Pascal, who has now set up her own company, Pascal Pictures, said that women in the movie business had “a mountain to climb” and described the lack of female directors as a “real travesty,” reports the Independent.

She resigned from Sony after the company’s emails were hacked allegedly by North Korea, who was angry over the comedy film ‘The Interview.’

Among the revelations was her suggestion that President Barack Obama might want to watch films such as ‘The Butler’ and ‘Django Unchained,’ which some critics condemned as racist. (ANI)
