“The male gaze,” largely acknowledged as “the act of depicting women and the world from a masculine, heterosexual perspective that represents women as sexual objects,” has been the dominant viewpoint since the beginning of art and culture — but what happens when women become the subject instead of the object? This panel conversation will explore the “female gaze” with writers, directors, and actors who are reclaiming female agency by (figuratively and literally) shifting viewers’ perspectives, and telling stories that place women and their world view at the center.

Panelists include Krista Vernoff (Showrunner / Executive Producer, Grey’s Anatomy & Station 19), Gloria Calderon Kellett (Showrunner / Executive Producer / Director / Actor, One Day at a Time), Abigail Spencer (Actor, Reprisal), and additional folks announced at a later date.
