Hollywood, Sexism, and YouTube [RTC]

  • Nadia G (Bitchin' Kitchen) and Kassem G (Askkassem, California On) discuss with Shira in our Real Time Conversation the culture of sexism in Hollywood and how WIGS, a new YouTube channel, has tried to provide an alternative to Hollywood, casting actresses that go beyond the stereotypical young and statuesque.
