Actress Rachel Brosnahan has said that Hollywood has “not changed enough”, despite the #MeToo movement. Speaking to A List, she spoke of the lack of women behind the camera in the industry, and how she tries to work with as many female producers and directors as possible.

“I think it’s important that if we are asking these [#MeToo] questions, that we are also trying to solve them.

“In the short time that I have been in this industry, people have been asking them the whole time, but I asked my agents to help me work with more women … and I have been pretty shocked at how difficult it has been to find material that fits that very broad criteria.

“That tells me that we have not changed enough, despite the wonderful conversations we are having about it. We have to find a way to connect these conversations to actions that create lasting change.”
