The Mindy Project is letting a series regular go next season. And it's a woman. Raise your hand if you're surprised.
She has a habit of surrounding herself exclusively with men. It's the case in her writer's room, and it's increasingly the case in front of the camera. She casts boys she thinks are cute as her boyfriends and love interests, and has slowly been pushing other female regulars off the show.
Her actions irritate me enough that I'm glad I figured out that I don't like her show last year.
My question is, does she have a responsibility to hire women? Is it a greater responsibility than her male showrunning counterparts? Why do we feel like she's doing a disservice by not hiring more women?
