Gender Gap in Films Quantified

Even Geena Davis, who has worked hard to identify the gender gap in films and address it through her Institute on Gender in Media, was shocked to learn about the gap in screen time between men and women actors in Oscar-nominated films, revealed in a New York Times article this past weekend.  I'm not sure I was shocked, but for YaleWomen, the statistics reinforce our passion for our 50/50 project, the goal of which is to achieve gender parity at all levels of government, media, academia and the business world.
