Actress Emma Watson feels that the difference between the numbers of female directors she has worked with and the number of male directors is a proof of the inequalities that exist for women in the industry, reported leading daily.
The 25-year-old actress has never been shy about expressing her views against unequal treatment of women in Hollywood.
“I have experienced sexism in that I have been directed by male directors 17 times and only twice by women. Of the producers that I’ve worked with, 13 have been male and only one has been a woman,” the actress said.
Emma, however, admitted that she has been lucky as compared to other women who have been turned away simply because of their gender, whether as an actress or director.
“I have always insisted on being treated equally and have generally won that equality,” she explained.
