I did see Wolf of Wall Street and no one at that company is portrayed as a good guy or gal. And there are women stockbrokers on the scene and they are seen to be just as greedy as the men.

Everyone in the story is on the make, regardless of gender. There is just a difference of how they go about it. You can see the contrast between Jordan's first wife and his second. The first one seems to have married him for love, while it is made clear that the second wife wanted the lush life. She doesn't leave him for his infidelity but for his loss of money.

The men are shown to be selfish and gross and it is made clear that this is a common characteristic of financial industry.

I have no intention of seeing it, partially because of what I've read about particular features of the "bacchanals" and partially because I really have no interest in seeing another Leo/Marty collaboration.
