Though French cinema is a world leader in making female directors central to the industry, there is still a strong male chauvinism throughout society, pervasive in both art and in the workplace. Director Tonie Marshall—whose latest film, Number One, depicts how women still have to struggle to climb the social ladder—will join director Marine Francen (The Sower), journalist Lisa Rosman, Women & Hollywood founder Melissa Silverstein, and producer & member of the PGA diversity committee, Rachel Watanabe-Batton, for a special talk about issues around female empowerment and the place of women in the French film and corporate industries.
