Female nudity almost three times as likely as male in Hollywood films
Women are almost three times as likely as their male counterparts to appear in a state of undress in Hollywood movies, according to a new report.
Study shows female film-makers made up 19% of top Hollywood jobs in 2015
The annual Report on the Status of Women and Girls in California found that 26% of female characters in the top 100 films of 2014 at the US box office appeared either nude or partially nude, compared to just 9% for male characters. Just 12% of films featured a female in the lead role, and only 23% of characters identified as in employment were women (compared to 46% of the US workforce).
The report from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles found that more women were working behind the camera, though fewer than one in five had acted as director, writer or producer on a major movie over the past 15 years.
