We're very lucky to have so many women writers, directors, editors,
photographers and other creative people establishing themselves at the
top ranks in TV and movies.  Hopefully this kind of pro-woman subtext
will become so common that we won't even think to comment on it!

I know you can't lump all show business people (or any other people)
together by gender, but when women are visible and in charge a lot more
of the time, it'll tend to be harder on average for some of the
blatantly sexist stuff to pass unnoticed.  That alone is a blessing.

It isn't really a TP topic, but I wanted to support Ann on this.
