Although Hollywood is now initiating more gender representation on screen, the Universal Pictures Head Donna Langley feels that there's still a lot of work to be done in this respect.

She says, "The needle hasn't been moved at all in the last 20 or 30 years," regarding representation of women in Hollywood.

Donna Langley said that she is trying to have, "many more conversations with many more kinds of people about inclusion and diversity than I ever have in my career, and I'm really encouraged by that."

As a woman heading a major studio house, Langley has made certain efforts to bring in those movies in the front line, which she as a woman would like to watch. She also pointed out that Fifty Shades of Grey and Trainwreck are those films which she played the bet on.

While talking about the ranking system in Hollywood, Langley said, "people being recognized and acknowledged for the things that they've done is a good thing."

While talking about inclusion of China and its impact in Hollywood, Langley said, "China is very important to the movie industry today, the number of movie theaters and filmgoers that has increased in China year-over-year, the numbers are extraordinary."

"China is very important to us, we're also looking at opportunities to potentially co-produce with China. They have an amazing infrastructure of their own, and we're looking to see if there are ways that we can collaborate on local product." Langley added.
