The latest report from media watchdog Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. Genders remain unequally represented in television and film. Our culture also remains fixated on male film narrators. -FYF Jacquie

The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media (founded in 2004 by Oscar-winning actress andUnited Nations special envoy Geena Davis) has published a new report (PDF) detailing the stereotypes, barriers, and straight-up exploitation that still define how badly women and girls are treated on screen. The study takes a deep dive into prime-time television, as well as children’s programming and family-friendly films. Women are scarcer in prime-time shows and family films, and those films depict “fewer women in prestigious occupational positions,” the study notes. “Females are not only missing from popular media, [but] when they are on screen, they seem to be there merely for decoration.”
