Betty Davis 1963 Reflects on Being a Woman in a Male-Dominated Industry

1963 Interview GIF-BetteDavis-Heads

As a female, I think [intelligence] is a terrible hindrance in business,” she says. “I think it’s a terrible hindrance for any female to have a lot of intelligence in private life. But I think in business sometimes it’s even worse because there’s deep resentment … from the male side of the business. We all work for men, you know, they’re the people in charge, and I think they find women easier who haven’t the ability to think for themselves or stand up for themselves. One can make more enemies as a female with a brain, I think.”
