Most voice actors will agree that there are plenty of voice-over jobs available, especially in television, however that’s not always the case for voice actresses.  Just take a look at Lake Bell’s recent movie “In A World…” that addresses the struggles of female voice actresses.  
 
Alicyn Packard hopes to help shatter the voice actress glass ceiling with her recent nomination for a Voice Arts Award as the only female nominated in the Outstanding National Promo Category.  Packard is the voice of the Ovation Network, and stands alone as the only female in the category.
