Meryl Streep Reveals Expose on Hollywood Gender Inequality In the Works

Bustle.com reports that while promoting her new film SUFRAGETTE at the Telluride Film Festival this week, Oscar winning actress Meryl Streep revealed news that columnist Maureen Dowd is currently working on an expose for The New York Times Magazine which will shine a light on discrimination women face in Hollywood.

Streep said the new work will discuss the ways in which men are still running the show, despite the abundance of talented females in the industry.

During the festival, Streep posed the question, "[Young female filmmakers today] do exist, they graduate [from top film schools], they're good - and then they don't get hired. Why?" She went on to reveal, "Maureen Dowd is writing a great big exposé about this question in The New York Times Magazine, coming up soon."

Streep has appeared on Broadway in Happy End, The Cherry Orchard, Secret Service, and Trelawny of the Wells, as well as off-Broadway's Wonderland in Concert and Alice in Concert.

The actress recently starred in Rob Marshall's film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's musical Into the Woods, The Homesman, and The Good House. Her past movie credits include Hope Springs, The Iron Lady, It's Complicated, Julie & Julia, Doubt, Mamma Mia!, The Devil Wears Prada, The Hours and many more.
