Shonda Rhimes Rare Success in a Male Dominated Industry

When you think of the TV and movie industry, some of the best chick flicks that you know of such as Charlie’s Angels and more, amazingly are not directed by women, they are directed by men. In fact, even though women graduate at an equal rate in comparison to men from film school, women directors among the top shows and movies are very rare.


Shonda Rhimes is quite the anomaly in the situation of female directors with three hit shows on ABC, that have a near cult following, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and newcomer to the lineup, How to Get Away with Murder starring Viola Davis.




Because of Shonda’s show, Grey’s Anatomy, the world fell in love with characters such as McDreamy aka Derek Shepard who recently left the show with a dramatic exit, giving his life to save the lives of others.  Shonda Rhimes is not only creating stars, she is also leading the way for other female directors to make a huge impact in the movie and tv industry.  So the next time you hear about a show or movie directed by a woman, take some time out to check it out.  It is up to us to help champion the success of female directors and create new jobs by supporting the shows and movies that we love.
