The Hollywood elite are all too familiar with the macho, sometimes dangerous ways women are treated, and many are even less comfortable with the idea of their daughters being raised by them.
But there’s one thing that Hollywood isn’t ready for yet: a daughter of the movie business.
That’s according to actress and author Danielle Steel, whose book, How to Be the Most Powerful Woman in Hollywood, is out now.
Steel, who stars on the hit HBO series Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, said that while she’s always loved being in the spotlight, she’s never seen a situation like the one that has developed in Hollywood in the last 10 years.
“I’ve had women in my life who have grown up with my daughters growing up and then have gone through all the machos, the power structures that have been put in place and the fear that they’re going to be hurt and hurt,” she said.
“It’s hard for me to imagine, but I’m not even sure if there is a woman out there who’s ready to have a daughter and that’s what I’m trying to do with this book.”
Steel’s book deals with the ways in which Hollywood women are raised and how they are treated in an industry where power is often wielded in ways that are dangerous.
The book focuses on how Hollywood moguls are raised in an environment where women are often considered subservient and often viewed as sex objects.
“For me, as a female, I think there are a lot of things that I’ve learned about how to be a better person that I never realized when I was growing up,” Steel said.
Steel says that as a young actress, she had to fight for herself and her career.
She had to learn how to stand up for herself.
She learned that women can’t just be ‘perfect’ and ‘beautiful’ and then they can make movies.
“You have to learn to be strong and you have to be assertive,” Steel told CNN.
“You have no choice but to be that way.
And to not be ashamed of it.
To be brave and to not let anyone tell you how to act.””
Women are treated with suspicion and violence and often as objects of sexual desire,” she continued.
“It is time to speak out and to be heard.
It’s time for our daughters to be able to understand that.”
The book also addresses the attitudes that women are expected to have, including how women are considered disposable, and how women and girls are seen as ‘good’ or ‘great.’
“I am not afraid of anyone, and if someone tells me I’m a bad girl, then I’m going to fight back,” Steel wrote in her book.
“If someone tells you that I’m ugly, I’m gonna fight back.”
Steel, a self-described ‘feminist’ who has been a member of the United Nations since 2000, has said she has always been drawn to the movies, especially the “darker and darker side of Hollywood.”
She believes women should be able be in the movies and in the industry.
“Women have never been allowed to have careers.
They’re not allowed to do anything that men are not allowed do,” Steel explained.
“And when they get into the industry, it’s the opposite of what we are taught.
Steel is the author of several books including The Man Who Would Be Queen and The Life and Times of Lady Gaga. “
That’s why it’s important that women speak up and be heard, and we need to do it together.”
