Amy Schumer on Sexism in Entertainment: 'I Think People Hate Women'

Originally posted 05/27/2015 05:50PM

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.

The Bachelorette Recap: Kupah Doesn't Understand Boundaries and Ben Z. Sends Jared to the Hospital

Originally posted 05/25/2015 11:00PM

And you thought that having 25 men vote for either Britt Nilsson or Kaitlyn Bristowe as their next Bachelorette would be the most uncomfortable thing to watch, as a woman, on this season of The Bachelorette. Naïve.

This week, eight of Kaitlyn's suitors took to a boxing ring to fight one another and posture manfully, and Ben Z. ended up sending Jared to the hospital while Kupah appeared more enamored of meeting Laila Ali than interacting with Kaitlyn.

Later, Kupah accused Kaitlyn of only keeping him around as part of a "quota," and then he completely ignored her boundaries when she asked him to leave. It was bad, but more on that below.
