Screenwriter Karen McCullah on Being a Woman in Hollywood: ‘I Don’t Ever Feel Discriminated Against’

This morning at the Vulture Festival's Screenwriters Roundtable in New York, Karen McCullah — the writer behind Legally Blonde, 10 Things I Hate About You, and The Ugly Truth, among others — weighed in on the subject.
