Its not too often that we here at TrueSlamBook pick a side on anything, we are taught to be informed yet impartial. However, this hit me hard! A few days ago I was having a Production meeting with my team. We were discussing a few upcoming projects we are about to embark upon. During this conversation we began to look at who we wanted to bring on board to aide in the completion. I told my assistant to find me aome female candidates as I didn’t want a team full of men.
Upon submission of resumes I ended up with 47 resumes, 32 from Males and 15 from Females. My mouth hit the floor. As i began to inquire about the results I was told that fhere just werent a lot of females in the Production Field! I called Bullshit and refused to take that as an answer.
I reached out to some of my personal contacts and begin to dig further. To my luck while reviewing Entertainment Weekly this week I stumble upon a page that blew my mind!
As you can imagine this got me excited. I began to pull some stats and found some interesting statistics in Jezebel.
I was boggled by such and just had to write about it. We fight for so many rights and forms of justice but why does Sexism seem to be the one that is so present yet rarely addressed?
I have to truly start a movement! A movement where sexism is void and equality is real. We fight for the rights of minorities, gays, animals, forest, and every other thing else someone feels strongly about. Today I start my stance to work towards a better tomorrow and that begins with making sexism a thing of the past in all things I do.
Salute to the Women who fight against the injustice and succeed. Salute to the Women who stand up for their beliefs. Most of all, Salute to the Women who know there Value and Refuse to let someone think lesser of them due to Gender!
Gender is NOT a Handicap it’s a Chromosome Identity!
