"There is nothing connected with the staging of a motion picture that a woman cannot do as easily as a man, and there is no reason why she cannot completely master every technicality of the art."
film director Alice Guy-Blaché, 1914
"Films with women at the centre are not niche experiences … audiences want to see them and, in fact, they earn money.”

“I think women are better than men. They are stronger, more evolved.”

"We know that it is the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and injustice ... speaking your truth is the most powerful tool you have."
