Ah yes, interesting how few women ever appear on these comments. Why is that? I'll take a stab in the dark and say Meryl knows a bit about the Hollywood boy's club and wants to give women mentoring and guidance so they can be represented a little more equally in Hollywood as directors and writers. Sounds fair enough to me. Networks, contacts and friends count for so much in this industry and if she wants to help get better stories told involving woman actually written by them in Hollywood, so she can act in them, then can you blame her? Anyone encouraging some different voices is only a good thing.
