Terry’s Picks: Pay Gap, Likeability Factor, Maya Angelou

Pay Gap: Newsweek spells out the startling pay gap between white and minority actors on television.

Likeability Factor: Read this smart interview with Amy Landecker, who plays Sarah Pfefferman on Amazon’s Transparent. She talks about playing a “hot mess,” sexism, and how “fully formed humans” aren’t always 100% likeable.

Maya Angelou: WIF LA member Rita Coburn-Whack’s documentary film Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise opens in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles on Friday. This intimate and personal portrait of Dr. Maya Angelou’s life is a touching and moving tribute to her legacy.
