Gender inequality is everywhere -- even in Hollywood.

A new Tumblr, "Hollywood Boys Club," points out the gender gap that exists behind the scenes of many TV shows and movies.

The blog's bio reads:

Are you watching TV shows written or directed exclusively by men? Do you subscribe to cable channels that produce such shows? Do you buy tickets for movies produced by studios that didn't hire a single female director during a production year? Please don't.

Posts on the blog include:
-- "Men Only: Every winner of -- and every nominee for -- the Academy Award and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award for Best Cinematography, ever"

--"24 – FOX – Created by Joel Surnow & Robert Cochran (192 episodes, Zero episodes directed by women)."

-- Television shows that hired no women writers during the 2011-2012 season -- including "Veep," "Californication" and "Psych."

You know things are bad when even a TV show like "Veep," which focuses on a complex female character, can't be bothered to include a woman on its writing team.

The project is run by members of a group called Anonymiss, who welcome tips and submissions from readers. Click over to the Hollywood Boys Club Tumblr to read more.
