The article focuses on issues related to women in the motion picture industry. While there have been some positive shifts--notably Amy Pascal's consolidation of power at Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and Dawn Ostroff's ascent to the top of the new CW network--the void created by moves like the company Universal Pictures losing both chairperson Stacey Snider and vice chair of production Mary Parent have resulted in something of a female power vacuum in the industry.
