Still Wonder Woman director Patty Jackson showed the industry that when it comes to stuff people want to see - great video content - they're gender blind. Now all the knuckle-draggers have to do is realize that the best man for the job -- say 50 percent of the time -- might be a woman. Of course we need to address things like color bias and equal pay but jeezz one step at a time. Wonder Woman is on the way to deliver $300M in the US and 4X that worldwide, her film's success might show the industry (and others) we have too many other challenges to simply ignore or dismiss half of the population.
