This is a much longer thread than I was anticipating! Think I'm gonna take a break. One thing to note — all is not lost. There are a ton of brilliant women who have already reviewed , and I'm sure many more to come. Men, try to prioritize reading theirs!

Also, pledging to make sure the press tour isn't overwhelmingly white and male is super inspiring. We just need publications to follow suit! After all, it is :)

Another very important point: this happens ALL THE TIME with films by people of color, in which every white male critic in the universe usually has something to say and most often gets commissioned to write reviews for the biggest publications.

So if you're a male critic reading this thread and you're asked to write a review of for a major publication, consider saying "You know, I think I should sit this one out and make room for women's voices."

Or if you're a publication or editor reading this thread, I'll hope you'll challenge yourself to commission women to write your reviews.

If a movie is moving the needle forward in terms of representation, you have a role to play too! You too can move the needle forward as an editor, a publication, or even a prominent man writer simply by making room for new voices.

Hi all! Had a chance to write some thoughts down and expand more on why I believe coverage should center women film critics.

Not only am I not going to write a review, you've convinced me I shouldn't even see it. More representation and diversity!

What a terrible message to female critics, "don't work hard and earn a position at a major publication, wait for a man to come along and just give one to you"
