For a topical follow-up to last night’s review of Anthony Lane’s review of Sex and the City: The Movie, via Feminist Law Profs, see this story about a remake of The Women starring mostly over-40 actresses. Apparently, the all-male studio execs at Warner Brothers don’t want to release it. Surprise! It’s so much easier for them when the movies star only men, and women play subordinate roles that serve the male characters.
Maybe Warner Brothers should just make their own digital fembots with big boobies that won’t even need a screen credit, let alone millions of dollars and a cut of the box office! Real women, with their wrinkly faces, saggy imperfect bodies, and demands to be paid for their work are just too much of a hassle. (I bet every workplace in America would love to replace their women workers with fembots!)
