Since the female-driven reboot of the popular and classic Ghostbuster franchise was announced back in August of 2014, it has been the subject of intense criticism and excitement. While some of the criticism fell on the necessity of the reboot – since the classic is pretty much a beloved Hollywood film – many of the criticism, unfortunately, was thinly veiled sexism over the female cast.
