BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. >> Women in Film is going behind the scenes to recognize 10 behind-the-camera talents with its annual Crystal + Lucy Awards.

Eight female producers, an agent and a director accepted prizes alongside actresses Taraji P. Henson and Natalie Dormer at a dinner ceremony Wednesday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. All called for gender parity in Hollywood and sisterhood among women working in the industry.

Agent Hylda Queally, “Homeland” director Lesli Linka Glatter and the producers behind such films as “Interstellar,” ”Juno,” and the “X-Men” franchise discussed the challenges they faced as women and mothers in male-dominated Hollywood.

Glatter said it’s not easy for anyone to be a director, “but it shouldn’t be harder for our daughters than it is for our sons.”
