Mimi Gross said that she has a much easier time with female assistants because they are more willing to do housekeeping and office tasks than males. “When I had a small child, I’d ask a female assistant to babysit while she was in the studio,” she said. “I wouldn’t ever think of asking a male assistant to watch my child.
