Stephanie McMahon: We Do Not Have Enough Female Writers In WWE

WWE has touted the success of the women's evolution ever since Stephanie McMahon introduced Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Sasha Banks to the main roster.

While women have been given more opportunities on-screen, things could be improved in the writers room according to Stephanie McMahon.

"We do not have enough," Stephanie told Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy. "We do not have enough female writers in the writers room, we are actively working on that. There is a dedicated focus to how we tell our women's storylines in the show, but we can always be better."

WWE released female writer Andrea Listenberger, who helped put together the Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose storyline, in April.

Women have been spotlighted more in recent years on television, including Becky Lynch making history as the first female to win in the WrestleMania main event. Becky became a breakout star after turning on Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam 2018 and dubbing herself 'The Man.'

"('The Man) really was her idea," Stephanie said. "It's funny because some women were very against it like, 'Why do you have to call yourself the man? Why can't you be The Woman.' But she just didn't take it, you know, too literally. The whole point was to turn that nomenclature on its ear, right, because everyone says, 'oh the biggest, the most successful person in the room is The Man. Well, why can't The Man be a woman?"

Lynch is currently off WWE television as she prepares to deliver her first child with fiance Seth Rollins.
