“My question is, how can this be? How, in 2015, can this still be happening?”
Editor’s note: Australian musician and actress Clare Bowditch went to the Screen Music Awards last night.
Anyway, Clare was there last night with her husband Marty and she noticed something a bit off. Of all the nominees at the awards, only two were female. TWO. Clare wrote about the night on her Facebook page and kindly let us republish that post here.
Something I gotta get off my chest and into the world, because I can’t figure it out on my own.
Marty and I had a fabulous time at the Screen Music Awards last night – it was a pleasure to present two awards and my sincere congratulations to all the most-deserving men who won. Rob Carlton was the consummate host and the orchestra were beyond belief.
In this photo, Marty and I represent one man, and one woman: we reflect the same gender ratio that exists in the general population, in real life.
