In a new feature in Interview Magazine, Thema & Louise star Geena Davis sat down with Emma Watson to talk about one subject they are both passionate about: feminism.

In the candid chat, the two discussed when they first noticed the lack of female roles in the film industry.

Davis, 60, explained that while watching TV with her then-preschool daughter she noticed that there were far more male characters than there were female. When she started widening her scope, she noticed a similar problem among mainstream Hollywood films.

Maybe it will change the way we think and...
