Sat. 8/20,12p: Carol Boss talks with film director and screenwriter Maria Giese about the widening Federal investigation into discrimination against women in Hollywood. 

She instigated the investigation after several years of activism in the Director's Guild of America where she turned her attention to a pattern of gender bias in the hiring of film and TV directors.  The N.Y. Times called the work she has done on this issue a "veritable crusade.''   Joining Maria will be Christine McHugh, Board President of New Mexico Women in Film.
