Variety: Will Focus on Hollywood Toxicity Force a Culture Change at Top Agencies?

November 7, 2017 | by

Sexually predatory ones are,” says Noreen Farrell, executive director of San Francisco-based nonprofit Equal Rights Advocates. “Most players in Hollywood understand the difference.

The answer is not to exclude anyone from meetings, but to keep them professional, no matter where they take place.”
