Jill Soloway: Amazon Show 'I Love Dick' 'Is a Tool of the Matriarchal Revolution'

“I Love Dick” director Jill Soloway and writer Sarah Gubbins headed to the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday, “revved” from the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., the previous day.

“‘I Love Dick’ is about the feminist movement, and it’s about the female gaze, and it’s about toppling the patriarchy, and saying ‘suck it’ to all men who would ask women not to have their loudest voice,” Soloway said about the Amazon series, which had an all-female writer’s room. “The show is a tool of the matriarchal revolution.”

Stars Kathryn Hahn, Kevin Bacon, Griffin Dunne, and Lily Mojekwu were also at the Variety Studio presented by Orville Redenbacher’s.
