Good Read | Judging a Movie By Its Trailer
…the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, founded by Davis in 2004 to change the portrayal of women in children’s media and entertainment, found that only 17 percent of people in group and crowd scenes in movies are women. These statistics are startling because women comprise 51 percent of the population and 52 percent of moviegoers, according to a 2012 study by the Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. These figures have also not changed significantly in decades, illuminating how the Hollywood status quo continues to be a predominantly male silver screen.
Male domination in movies hasn't changed much. Does this help mold our social expectations for whether women have a right to be visible and heard?
