“On Oscar night, when Hollywood seeks to honor its best, Seth MacFarlane’s monologue reduced our finest female actresses to caricatures and stereotypes, degrading women as a whole and the filmmaking industry itself”
– wrote Assemblywoma.n Bonnie Lowenthal and Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, who lead the Democratic Legislature’s women’s caucus in a letter to Academy President Hawk Koch.
“This should be a celebration of artists in the filmmaking industry, not an offensive display of disrespect toward women that sets the fight for gender equality, dignity, and respect back decades,” they added.
