10.03.20 / For the first time, there are as many female lead characters in family films as male lead characters, says The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.
According to the See Jane 2020 report, 48% of the 100 top-grossing family movies featured lead female characters last year, double the number of 2007. Female characters’ screen and speaking time have both increased, reaching 40%.
However, female characters are six times more likely than male characters to be shown in revealing clothing, and women of color are still underrepresented in leading roles.
