Oscar for Best Female Director?

February 29, 1992

Terry Pristin's article, "Is Streisand Snub Borne of Disparity?" (Feb. 21), brings to light some interesting points. Pristin notes that some cynics ask, "Should separate Oscars be awarded for best male director and best female director, just as they are for best actor and best actress?"

The answer is no. In a world trying to move away from sexism and segregation, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and all institutions, should make every effort to treat all people as equals. It is time we stop insisting on separating men and women over so many issues.
