Actress Jennifer Garner was briefly interviewed at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards in regards to balancing her life around her family and her life as an actress, but her husband, Ben Affleck was asked questions that mostly regarded his female costar. The above article states that she “was ‘a little bit sad’ that such an event even had to exist. [She also said that] ‘The ‘men in Hollywood’ event is every day – it’s called Hollywood. Fifty-one per cent of the population should not have to schedule a special event to celebrate the fact that in an art that tells the story of what it means to be human and alive, we get to play a part.’ ” What would happen if more celebrities spoke out like this? Would the media adjust the way they conduct interviews?
