Ten years ago, Nell Scovell first told her story as a woman on the male-dominated writing staff for "Late Night With David Letterman," writing in Vanity Fair that she "walked away from [her] dream job" after just a few months over what she called a "hostile" and "demeaning" work environment. At the time, Letterman did not read her personal and heartfelt take-down of sexism in the industry. But this year, Scovell finally got Letterman to sit down with her to discuss her experiences working on his show, and to get an apology.

Jim Braude spoke with Nell Scovell about her experience and what has and hasn’t changed for women in television.
