Hollywood: Women strike back

Sexual harassment, pay gaps, a lack of interesting female roles and few chances for women behind the camera - gender inequality in film is as old as the Hollywood hills. As women call "Time's Up" in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Eve Jackson crosses the pond to speak to the people working to redress the balance.

Among our guests are Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Tippi Hedren, the star of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds", who says her career was derailed because she refused the director’s sexual advances.

Jackson also meets the former star of "Beverly Hills, 90210", Gabrielle Carteris, who is now the head of the SAG-AFTRA actors' union, as well as writers and film students to find out if a real revolution is under way and what it will mean for the future of film.
