Trailblazer Lyndall Hobbs reflects on the struggle for women in Hollywood

Article image for Trailblazer Lyndall Hobbs reflects on the struggle for women in Hollywood

She’s been a TV journalist, filmmaker, interior designer, and breast cancer survivor.

Now, Lyndall Hobbs has penned a memoir of a life lived among celebrities and hollywood parties, A Girl From Oz. 

A trailblazer for women, Ms Hobbs was the first female reporter on A Current Affair, and the first woman to swim with the famous Icebergers.

Ms Hobbs told Denis Walter Hollywood is a particularly difficult place for woman to crack.

‘As a woman, if you say anything, you’re considered a difficult bitch,’ she said.

‘Whereas a guy would just be a nice, strong, decisive director.’

Of the 250 films released in America in 2015, only 7% were directed by women.
