A new report from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film found that women were behind just 7% of the top 250 films of 2016, a figure that’s down 2% from the year before.

THE REAL PROBLEM IS: when studios think “director” they think “male.” A cultural issue we need to get past.
SO…THE REAL ANSWER IS: Think “talent.” Think “diverse mind-set.”
