Cosponsored with the Writers Guild of America, East

Women and Late Night Television

May 13, 2010

New York


Late night talk shows have dominated water-cooler conversation recently, but most of the conversation has centered on the male ego. Bill Carter of the New York Times has pointed out that “very few women make it inside the writing rooms for late-night television hosts, despite that women make up a larger proportion of their audience than men.” This event will examine the legacy of women who have contributed to the late night genre, as well as the challenges of increasing representation.
