Amy Schumer has a theory about the inherent inequality of women in show business: "I think people hate women."
In a roundtable of comedic actresses assembled for The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, the Inside Amy Schumer creator and star adds, "I don't think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling a them."
Schumer continues, "My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I'm not saying all men hate women, but there's such an aggression."
For the magazine's June 5 issue, THR sat down with Schumer, Lena Dunham, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper, Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, Black-ish's Tracee Ellis Ross and Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon to discuss the struggles of being a woman in entertainment and the sexism they've encountered throughout their careers.

Girls fans know all about the bumbling romantic lives of Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa, but we haven't gotten very much insight into the love escapades of Elijah, Hannah's former closeted boyfriend-turned-BFF. Now, star Andrew Rannells says Elijah is finally in for an in-depth romantic storyline.
"Elijah gets to be a little bit serious this season, and he gets to have a serious relationship. I'm very excited about it," Rannells told PEOPLE about Girls' upcoming fifth season at the Olevolos Project brunch.
Like most characters on the HBO show, Elijah must contend with a learning curve when it comes to matters of the heart.
"We haven't seen it before so it's not like something he is good at. You're going to see him sort of flail around a lot," Rannells teased.

Listening to Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet talk is a lot like watching an episode of Girls, their HBO comedy about four friends navigating postcollegiate life in New York City: Nothing is off limits, and nothing is dwelled upon for too long before the next topic of discussion arises.

HBO has provided only the first five episodes of season 4 of writer-actress Lena Dunham's Girls,
premiering Sunday at 9 p.m. ET – otherwise known as the time when the Golden Globes are airing on
NBC – but so far the show is biting, funny, touching and surprising.
In short, it's an absolute delight, and possibly even better than the landmark first season. That's the one that ended with Elijah (Andrew Rannells) greeting Marnie (Allison Williams) with this putdown of her dress: "Hello, J-Lo from the Grammys."
Of course, Dunham, who stars as desperately ambitious Brooklyn writer Hannah Horvath, has in the past shown an almost willful tendency to let go of the leash and allow the show to bolt off and run away like an undisciplined Labrador pup.
