#GAReads | Study: Nearly 80% of movie critics are men
A new study from University of Southern California’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative found that nearly 80% of film critics are men.
Based on information from Rotten Tomatoes, the study analyzed critics from the top 100 films of 2017. Out of 19,559 reviews, 77.8% were authored by men versus 22.2% by women. And when race is factored in, the results aren’t any better for women or people of color: 63.9% white men; 18.1 white women; 13.8% underrepresented men; 4.1% underrepresented women.
