Impoverished Humor

A broad send me a notice announcing the finalists for the FOX/NYTVF comedy screenwriting competition. Out of 25 scripts with 36 writers, only 4 are women, and only 2 were solo scribes.  The other two women were in writing teams with men.   Check it out here.

The reasons for starting Broad Humor still stand.  The comic vision of women is absent from our entertainment landscape.  Kinda like a painting of the countryside with no flowers.  Trees, rivers, wildlife, rocks, sky and sun.  Fine.  But where are the Roses, the Irises, the Daisys?
