This Tumblr Perfectly Captures The Rampant Sexism In The Film Industry

"I only hired her to see if her bush is as red as her hair. I think it's fake."

Women and men in the film industry were invited to anonymously submit their stories about the way they've been or seen women be treated.


When the anonymous blog was launched last week, the administrator said they received "a year's worth of submissions" in the first night alone.

The submissions came from women of all different positions and levels of experience.


Some people responded in disbelief.

Others just didn't really seem to get it.

But some men felt moved to apologize on behalf of their entire sex.


Still, it is clear the administrators of this blog do not want to discourage women from entering the world of film.

In fact, it appears as if they want the exact opposite.

And for at least one reader, it seems to be working.
