Is it harder or easier for women in the entertainment field today? (VIDEO)

How is the modern entertainment industry different than it used to be?

Melissa Gilbert shares why the entertainment industry is more difficult now than it was when she was a child.

Melissa says, "It's never easy for anyone to grow up in the public eye. It's very difficult no matter the generation. There are a lot of unusual and weird pressures. When I grew up, it was difficult to be a child actor, but now it's a completely different situation for young people and celebrities in general. When I was a kid, you had paparazzi but you knew where they were and you knew when they were coming. Now, everyone is paparazzi. Everyone has a phone. There is the added pressure of not trusting anyone, anywhere, and that didn't exist when I was a child. I think it's a lot harder now."
