President Obama went to Hollywood yesterday, and publicly, for the first time, spoke about what the entertainment business means to the US and to the world.

From The Wrap

Entertainment is one of America's biggest exports...part of our American diplomacy 

You can say, 'May the force be with you' [anywhere in the world], they'll know what you're talking about.

You help shape the world's culture.

Thank you Mr. President for helping making clear why we do what we do at Women and Hollywood. We know that entertainment shapes the culture and that it is a huge export and we want to make sure that it is not just white men shaping the world's culture.
