40 of the top 100 films at the U.S. box office in 2018 were led or co-led by womxn. That’s one of the findings of the Inclusion Initiative conducted at USC Annenberg. The study has examined gender and race on screen in popular films since 2007. In previous years this number hung somewhere between 20 and 33, so it seems that at last, we are moving in the right direction!
But what happens, when we look at who these actors portray? What are the leading roles offered to womxn? Are they mothers? Partners? Best friends?
IT’S COMPLICATED is trying to unpack this question and discuss the complex relationships among womxn on screen.
