Someone pointing out a truth.

For the critical-thinking-challenged here:

The lack of women in any positions of power (until very, very recently, and still mostly in TV) in Hollywood has certainly made it easier for men to get away with sexual harrassment and rape in the business. The male code of silence maintains the status quo. As much as possible, they only wanted women around who were compliant sex objects. Also, the men who are power hungry don’t want to compete with women as well as with other men.

This matters ourside the business as well, because Hollywood has impacted the American sense of self for a long time. So its lack of support for equality for women definitely had at least an unconscious effect in other arenas.
