Film industry so sexist, says Carey Mulligan

By Kerri-Ann Roper

Actress Carey Mulligan has bemoaned the "sexist film industry", saying that women's stories are "largely untold".

Mulligan's latest role in the movie Suffragette sees her playing Maud Watts, a laundry worker and housewife from the East End who gets drawn into the suffragette movement.

In an interview with Reader's Digest, Mulligan reflects on why this story hasn't been told before.

"I don't think it's an oversight at all," she says, "I think we have a sexist film industry, and stories about women are largely untold. This is one that's fallen by the wayside because of that."

"I think a lot of people have sat around tables in various production offices and decided it wasn't financially viable."
