"Hollywood has made 'no progress' in on-screen diversity, report finds":

Hollywood has made “no progress” in on-screen representation over the past decade, with women of color largely excluded from leading roles and men occupying more than twice as many roles as women in 2017 films, according to new research.

The report from the University of Southern California (USC) Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, which analyzed the top 100 films each year since 2007, found that only 31.8% of characters with dialogue were women last year, roughly the same ratio that has persisted for the last 11 years. Only four women of color were leads in 2017, and white actors were cast in 70.7% of all speaking roles.
