Sir: Rebecca Front (Between the Lines, 27 March) was described as an "actress and comedian". This highlights an anomaly. Can the distinction between male and female actors be justified? Should it not be "actor and comedian", and should not the work of all actors, regardless of sex, be judged together for awards such as the Oscars?
