LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT: Neal Baer and Shohreh Aghdashloo Preview ‘Dirty’

January 19, 2011 by  

On tonight’s new episode of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, Emmy-winner Shohreh Aghdashloo guest stars and the topic of sexism in the workplace is tackled.

“This is [an episode] that really explores what it is to be a woman detective, through the eyes of Shohreh’s character and Mariska [Hargitay]’s character (Olivia),” explained executive producer Neal Baer in a conference call with reporters. “This is a big episode that really only has Mariska and Shohreh in it. Ice-T (Fin) is in it a bit, but it’s really about women who have been working for a while in their positions and what pressures, stresses and strains confront them. Also, Gloria Reuben is in the show as well, so it’s really the three of them confronting what it means to be a woman in the top of their field with many pressures from men.”

“I do think it’s a very interesting [topic] that we haven’t explored in great depth,” he added. “When a woman has been in her field for 20 years or so, what pressures does she see and feel that men might not?”

Aghdashloo also weighed in: “To add to what you just said — and this is what my character said in the episode — few women make it that far without stabbing each other in the back.”
