A place to celebrate anything anti-oppression, anti-kyriarchy, anti-hate and pro-equality.

The LA Times Confirms What We Already Know - The Academy is Old, White and Male

The LA Times has dug in and talked to 89% of Academy members and to no one’s surprise the Academy is old, white and male.

Here are the stats:

  • The Academy is 94% white
  • The Academy is 77% male. 
  • The media age is 62.
  • Only 14% are under 50 years old.

Also we learned that women make up just 9% of the directing branch and 19% of the screenwriting branch.

This is why we need more women (and people of colour!) controlling and contributing to media.
