"There are huge differences in the way male and female actors are perceived," she says. "Women have to be a certain size, in order to get good roles. And once women reach a certain age, they can only expect one or two good roles per year, whereas male actors can continue working regularly well into their forties. Then there are the types of roles available to women,” she continues. “We’re constantly depicted as sidekicks, ingenues, and hangers-on, rarely as independent and capable individuals. And the enormous, huge discrepancies in pay….the amounts that some male actors make are astronomically obscene. Women in Hollywood are constantly shown that there’s a difference between them and men, and that that’s okay. But it’s not okay.”

Welcome fellow lovers of one of the best shows to ever grace television. And welcome lovers of Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, and their various exceptional works.
