Off the Cliff
Released more than 25 years ago, the film Thelma and Louise defied the odds in ever getting made in the first place.
And in the long run, it was a blip on the screen when it comes to films that feature women in strong protagonist roles.
Of the top 100 grossing films in 2017, just one in four featured female leads.
Today, we discuss the impact Thelma and Louise had on Hollywood and where the industry stands today in the continuing wake of the "Me Too" movement.
