Sarah Jessica Parker hopes the entertainment industry won't ''disregard men'' in its bid to bring more opportunities to women.

In light of the gender inequality issues that have surfaced throughout the entertainment world over recent months - including allegations of sexual harassment and pay gaps - many stars have called for more female-led movies to give opportunities to actresses.

However, Sarah Jessica, 53, has said that she won't be writing off men completely when it comes to her production banner Pretty Matches Productions, and hopes other companies don't either.

She told People magazine: ''I don't want to disregard men - there are really critical, important men in our industry as there are across all industries. We've always functioned as a majority female production company. We're excited about female stories and storytellers, directors, producers, writers, sound mixers, production designers, editors.

''But I think the place we want to get is to where all stories are important and being told, and men are included in those stories. Men play a role in our lives so if we isolate too much, we're gonna be missing out on interesting and complex stories. I think it's just finding ways of moving a pipeline towards job opportunities for women of all backgrounds and colours.''

The 'Sex and The City' star previously spoke about the need for men to be involved in the women's rights movement, and praised her agent Kevin Huvane for supporting her during a time when she could have fallen victim to sexual misconduct.

She said recently: ''My agent sent a car and a plane ticket [to the film set] and he said, 'If anybody makes you do anything that you're not comfortable doing, you don't.' Given what's happening now and the stories told from that particular period, I know how lucky I am that there was someone - in this case, a man - who stepped in.''
