2.6k views

In a kind of reverse Handmaiden’s Tale, the 2018 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards has banned male presenters.

As the Hollywood Reporter reports, the ceremony's 13 acting awards and two stunt categories will be presented by women.

Ashley Lee writes: 

The motion to prioritize female visibility at the televised event is designed to be a response to the slew of sexual harassment scandals in Hollywood. Traditionally, a man and a women have been paired to present each category's winner at the SAG awards. The ceremony's list of presenters have not yet been released.

“Beginning with the Women’s March in January, it’s been the year of the woman,” SAG Awards executive producer Kathy Connell told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday morning. “This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up.”
