Hollywood claims that it supports women's rights. However, Hollywood executives still pay female movie stars far less than their male counterparts. Hollywood is now not even giving them enough of a chance to copyright their own films. They were doing much better in the 1910s and 1920s when women copyrighted half the films in Hollywood.
If this statistic is true, then yes, in some ways Hollywood has taken a step backwards. Although they have made any effort to ensure that more dynamic parts are written for women, there are not enough women involved in making films. Well under 50% of directors, writers, and crew are women.
Yes, Hollywood have started making films in which women's brain and knowledge are of secondary importance. Following the global trend of cultural decadence, Hollywood is trying to satisfy a wish of many - to see only beautiful women in vulgar clothes who live for a moment. Being such an industry of decadence, women screenwriters are refusing to participate.
Yes, Hollywood has taken a step backward because women and minorities do not get the same roles as white, rich men. The Oscars last year proved that white men are favored for the best jobs; therefore, women do not have a chance to be as recognized for their acting abilities.
