Amy Pascal on Hillary Clinton: ‘That Last Glass Ceiling Has Been Shattered’

Hillary Clinton made history on Tuesday night by becoming the first woman to clinch the presidential nomination of a major political party. She marked the milestone with a Tweet which read: “To every little girl who dreams big: Yes, you can be anything you want — even president.”

That message resonated with leaders in other industries including Hollywood. As co-chair of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Amy Pascal was one of the few women to lead a Hollywood studio. Variety asked Pascal, who is now the head of Pascal Pictures, to reflect on what that barrier-breaking moment means to her. 

Amy Pascal: “I, like many other women of my generation, never realistically imagined that in our lifetime, we would see a woman standing as the leader of one of the two major political parties. Not because we didn’t think a woman could handle the job but because none of us could imagine how someone was going to find a way to break into that macho boy’s club that ran the political system in our country. Well, now that last glass ceiling has been shattered by Hillary and it is thrilling to know that little girls across the country and around the world will finally and realistically be able to believe that there is nothing that they cannot accomplish and no goal that they can’t reach. It’s a great day!”
