Study: Women on Film Silent, Naked

The Women’s Media Center is out with its annual report, and it’s filled with a bunch of depressing facts about how women are portrayed in the media. Only 28.4 percent of speaking roles in the top 100 grossing films went to women, the lowest since 2007. Women were also three times as likely to appear naked as men in these films. The women behind the camera aren’t doing much better: Only 16 percent of the top grossing films of 2013 were written, directed, or produced by women.
