How Hollywood Represented Women in 2012

The folks at Miss Representation have been watching how storytellers portray women.  This year, they've tallied up how Hollywood was both naughty and nice to women.  This short video shows some progress, such as The Mindy Project, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Homeland, and the older ladies of the Marigold Hotel who actually get to be protagonists not laughable crones.  But it also shows, TV's same old same old:  Honey Boo Boo, "Real" Housewives of various cities and other degrading entertainments.  Join and help them make Hollywood change to suit its audience. www.missrepresentation.org/
