The Reinforcement of Patriarchy in Film

June 16, 2014

“… the New York Film Academy decided to take a closer look at women in film and what, if any, advancements women are making. After reviewing the data, it is clear that Hollywood remains stuck in its gender bias.”

Women remain under-represented in all facets of film making, making it easier to understand why they continue to be poorly represented in the movies themselves.

Check out this excellent infographic from the New York Film Academy.

Or read this excellent study titled, “Independent Women: Behind-the-Scenes Employment on Festival Films in 2013-14” by Martha M. Lauzen, Ph.D., of San Diego State University.
