Davis Failed To Liberate Women

GEENA DAVIS is sad her efforts in road trip movie THELMA + LOUISE failed to encourage Hollywood studios to make films about strong, determined women. The 50-year-old is known for starring in empowering female roles, such as liberated housewife THELMA in the SIR RIDLEY SCOTT film, female baseball ace DOTTIE in A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN and more recently, America's first female president in the TV series COMMANDER IN CHIEF. She says, "We can't seem to catch momentum. After Thelma + Louise everyone said there would be a bunch of female buddy movies. There weren't. "A League Of Their Own was a giant hit, so there were going to be so many female sports movies. There wasn't one until BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, and that wasn't even an American movie and it was ten years later."
