I participated in a Huff Post Live conversation yesterday with some great folks including producer Lynda Obst about the lack of women on screen this summer. Check out our conversation.

The host didn't even know what an IP was? Sad to hear how the women speaking list so many requirements to what they think should be considered a women lead movie, that's lame. 'Hunger Games' doesn't count? So because a book is an IP, the mass of females that went to see the move don't count? I think this is a group of folks that can easily complain based on the parameter of whats on the box-office. There's lot of indies doing things where women are the leads, highlight them...

So men are afraid to go to women that have women. So it's not the female haters club at the studios? It's the male population. Warners, Sony, Universal, Paramount are making crap catered to men.
