Hollywood's Fempire  

Since seeing the amazingly witty and wonderful Juno, I fell in love with the witty and wonderful screenwriter, Diablo Cody. Diablo, who is completely open about her prior career as a stripper, is beautiful, smart, and hilarious:

A few days ago, the New York Times featured an interesting article about Diablo Cody and her posse of fellow female writers. The four best friends call themselves "The Fempire." The Fempire includes Diablo Cody, who wrote Juno and is currently working on a show with Stephen Spielberg called The United States of Tara, Lorene Scafaria who wrote Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Dana Fox who wrote What Happens in Vegas, and Liz Meriwether, an up-and-coming screenwriter. Together, these talented women take on the male-dominated Hollywood to provide us with smart and funny movies with strong female characters. I thought Juno was the best addition to the woman-centered movies category in a long time. I can't wait to see what else the Fempire brings to Hollywood in the future.

What next?
