You may or may not be familiar with producer Ross Putman's Twitter feed @femscriptintros. Ross, having been in the industry for many years decided that he would call out the way that female characters are portrayed in the scripts that he's reading. He takes actual script introductions of female characters and replaces them with "JANE" to protect the writers. 

For those of you who don't know Ross, he's a Stage 32 Educator, and a successful producer having recently won the Sundance NEXT Award for his film FIRST GIRL I LOVED (Now available here).

We applaud Ross for bringing an awareness to the way female characters are portrayed and we hope if you don't follow his Twitter, you will now.
