Eighty two women working in the film industry, including Cate Blanchett, Ava DuVernay and Jane Fonda have taken to the Cannes red carpet in silent protest at the lack of female directors at the festival.
Blanchett, the jury president of this year's festival, led the group and read out a statement from the steps of the Palais des Festivals, joined by French film director Agnes Varda, who read the statement in French.
Cate Blanchett, as Head of the jury, will award the Palme d'Or. As women, we all face our own unique challenges, but we stand together on these stairs today as a symbol of our determination and commitment to progress. "We stand in solidarity with women of all industries".
The ranks included a battalion of Oscar winners from Helen Mirren and Marion Cotillard to U.S. blockbuster directors Ava DuVernay and Patty Jenkins who made "Wonder Woman".
Blanchett, a double Oscar victor, said they wanted "a world that allows all of us in front and behind the camera to thrive shoulder to shoulder with our male colleagues". The stairs of our industry must be accessible to all.
