For years, women fought to work behind the camera, especially in the television world, while the Hollywood system balked. But this fall, there’s real evidence that change is coming, thanks to the industry embracing a simple two-step process:

This year, FX dug into this issue unlike perhaps any other network on television, courtesy of what network president John Landgraf called “a good, swift, well-deserved kick in the butt” from Variety’s Maureen Ryan. The TV critic last year broke down the demographics for directors working in TV and found that 88 percent of FX Networks episodes last season were directed by white men.
