Gender Disparity On Screen and Behind the Camera in Family Films

Journalism & Media

2010

The purpose of this study is to examine gender portrayals in family films rated G, PG, or PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). The findings suggest that gender hegemony is still alive and well in the movie business. Only 29.2% of all speaking characters are female across 122 G, PG, and PG-13 films theatrically-released between 2006 and 2009. When females do appear on screen, it is sometimes in an appearance centric light. Females are more likely than their male counterparts to be young, scantily clad, and attractive.

Gender Stereotypes: An Analysis of Popular Films and TVJournalism & Media

2008

This report presents the findings of 4 different studies of gender stereotypes in TV and film. Study number one covers G-rated films, 1990-2005. Study number two covers G-, PG-, PG-13, R-Rated prevalence and portrayal of female characters, 1990-2006. Study number three is a qualitative analysis of 13 female leads in G-rated films. The fourth and final study covered the prevalance, portrayal, and appearance of female characters in TV for kids ages 11 and under. The results from these four studies clearly point out that gender inequality is prevalent in both film and television aimed at children. The results from these investigations reveal that much work is needed to be done to achieve gender parity and improved portrayal in film and in children’s television.

The Status of Women in the U.S. Media 2012

Journalism & Media

2012

This report summarizes the recent available statistical data on women who determine the content of news, literature, and television and film entertainment, as well as on how women are depicted on entertainment television and film. Data were compiled from several leading sources of statistical and analytic data on women in the media, and from recent research articles on media gender inequity. The report is intended to provide a broad overview of the status of women in the U.S. media at the beginning of 2012. Results indicate that, over the past decade, women consistently have been underrepresented in news and entertain- ment media, with little change in proportions over time. When films and television do depict female characters, they often reflect gender stereotypes. Women in films, particularly young women, are far more likely than men to be hypersexualized.

Research has shown that underrepresentation and negative depictions in media have broad societal effects. How women are represented in media affects gender equity in general. It is important to determine the causes of underrepresentation and stereotypical depiction and to develop practical approaches to improving the status quo.

How Women Organize Social Networks Different from Men

Journalism & Media

2012

Superpositions of social networks, such as communication, friendship, or trade networks, are called multiplex networks, forming the structural backbone of human societies. Novel datasets now allow quantification and exploration of multiplex networks. Here we study gender-specific differences of a multiplex network from a complete behavioral dataset of an online game society of about 300,000 players. On the individual level females perform better economically and are less risk-taking than males.

Gatekeepers of Venture Growth: The Role and Participation of Women in the Venture Capital IndustryEntrepreneurship & Small Business

2004

Women represent less than 10 percent of high-level venture capitalists, and they have been leaving the industry at twice the rate of men, according to Gatekeepers of Venture Growth: The Role and Participation of Women in the Venture Capital Industry.  The study is the latest report of the Diana Project, a multi-year, multi-university study of women business owners and business growth opportunities. The research ultimately seeks to determine whether having more women in decision-making roles in the venture capital industry would provide greater access to women entrepreneurs who seek funding. For the period from 1995 to 2000, the Diana researchers looked at: where high-level women VCs were in the industry; their influence in decision-making within their firms; and the extent to which they increased the flow of women-led deals to their partnerships.

Overcoming the Gender Gap: Women Entrepreneurs As Economic DriversEntrepreneurship & Small Business

2011 September

This paper explores the intersection of two issues that often are thought of separately: the need for sustained economic recovery in the United States, and the status of women’s entrepreneurship. Despite recent gains, women still lag behind men on key measures of startup activity, and their firms tend not to grow or prosper nearly as much. Typically, this is seen as a ―women’s‖ issue. It is framed as a problem to be dealt with for the benefit of women, in the interest of gender equality. In fact, it is an economic issue that affects everyone.
