Female H’wood directors want quotas for diversity

On Wednesday, female directors of shows like American Horror Story and Scandal said quotas are necessary to obtain more gender and racial diversity in Hollywood at the Television Critic Association round table.

“I never want to be hired because I’m a woman director, but maybe at this moment there needs to be quotas,” said short-film director Maggie Kiley.

A recent report on diversity in the industry found that while racial minorities make up 40 percent of the US population, they are only 10 percent of Hollywood producers and the same figure applies for women.
