Gender Bias in Movies – New Report

SeeJane.org just released a new study on Gender Bias in Movies.  Turns out, the underrepresentation of women in movies is an international phenomenon.  One ray of hope for the future the study found is that when women are writers, directors and/or producers, the number of female characters in a given film increases.

The full executive summary can be found here.

Do you think having female characters in movies matters?  Does it have an effect on society at large?  Or, is it something that doesn’t make much difference – it’s just entertainment, after all?
