At the event, Lena revealed that she isn’t interested in being directed by man at this time in her career.

“I’m not that attracted to that, I don’t have a case of great man syndrome,” Lena expressed. “It sounds so tiring to me to get bossed around by a dude for six months, it’s almost inconceivable but never say never. At this point I would just like to write and direct, I would really like to create opportunities for other women. I really love directing other female actors.”

Lena Dunham Writes Passionate Essay in Support of Hillary Clinton for President

Lena Dunham poses with famous author Gloria Steinem on the red carpet at the 2016 Matrix Awards held at The Waldorf Astoria on Monday (April 25) in New York City.

The duo were also joined at the event by Katie Couric, Savannah Guthrie, filmmaker George Lucas and businesswoman Mellody Hobson.

Lena just wrote a passionate essay in support of Hillary Clinton for President.

“I’m with Hillary because of her commitment to women’s reproductive health and rights. The quest for reproductive care can be lonely, scary and crushingly expensive. As someone with a chronic reproductive illness who frequently receives treatment from kind, expert doctors and nurses, I believe all women and girls—even if they aren’t on premium cable—deserve that same level of care,” Lena wrote in Time magazine. “I respect Senator Sanders and his supporters. I am turned on by how informed and invigorated they have been throughout this campaign. And there’s a lot in Senator Sanders’s voting record to cheer about. But there’s no comparison between his commitment to fighting for women and Hillary’s. None. This has been her life’s work and she comes at it from every direction.”
