We hear all too often about gender inequity in Hollywood and how men far outpace women in the writer's room. But a college in Columbia, Missouri is trying to change that. 

Stephens College has launched the first M.F.A program specifically designed to increase the number and impact of women working in TV and film.

They hosted an event this weekend at the Writer's Guild in LA.

For a preview, Take Two spoke to Ken LaZebnik, director of Stephens and fellow participating panelist Lizzy Weiss, whose credits include Switched at Birth and Blue Crush.
