From Variety:

Patty Jenkins hopes that someday reporters will stop asking her about the lack of diversity in Hollywood, but until the movie business creates more opportunities for women and minorities, she’s happy to weigh in on the issue.

“It’s a conversation that has to be had,” Jenkins said during Vanity Fair’s New Establishment summit on Tuesday. “It’s less about observing diversity than it is about acknowledging that we are a very diverse world.”

Jenkins scored a hit with last summer’s “Wonder Woman,” but the director said she wanted to make the film because the character was compelling and the story was interesting. The film had universal appeal, she argued.

“A movie about a woman doesn’t make it a ‘woman’ movie,” said Jenkins. “‘Wonder Woman’ was about being a hero.”
