Women Still Getting the Shaft in Hollywood: Report

Hollywood InequalityShocker, I know: "Females were 'dramatically under-represented' in the United States’ top 100 grossing films last year, accounting for 33% of all characters at a time when they made up nearly 51% of the U.S. population, according to a study being released Tuesday. [...] The report mirrored a study of women's behind-the-scenes participation that the center released in January, which found that women made up 18% of all directors, producers, writers, cinematographers and editors working on the 250 highest-grossing movies last year. That was only one percentage point higher than when the center began studying employment figures in 1998." [LAT]

    Maybe the percentage of female directors, cinematographers, producers etc is so low because they wouldn't be caught dead being a part of something like Battleship!

    The article title alone leads me to believe there are plenty of satisfied women in the California area.
