Patty Jenkins

I’ve never been more aware of a duty than I was in this deal. I was extremely aware that I had to make sure I was being paid what the male equivalent would be.”

  1.  Born in California, raised in Kansas
  2. Father was an Air Force captain and fighter pilot and also her inspiration
  3. Cooper Union  Advancement of Science & Art & AFI for film directing
  4. Husband is an author and firefighter
  5. Directed Monster and Wonder Woman
  6. First female director of any DC or Marvel “Superhero” film.
  7. Negotiated salary for $7-9 million to equal male director salaries (women make 80c to men’s $1)
  8. Decided to work in TV instead of films to spend more time with her newborn son, stressing that this was her decision.
  9. Shrugged off James Cameron’s criticism that Godot’s Superwoman was an “objectified icon”
  10. Self-identifies as “last-wave feminism” (which technically would be fourth-wave)

“I have always wanted to be last-wave feminism, where you’re so feminist, you’re not thinking about it at all.”
