When thinking of Hollywood, you would probably imagine superheroes and TV scandals, Grace Kelly & Marilyn Monroe, legendary actresses. Yes, and ladies in diamonds on the red carpet with outfits from famous designers. But the truth is, women have never been at the center of Hollywood.
The movie industry has long underrepresented women, who have had to play more feminine, weak, or secondary characters. The false stereotype that viewers prefer male characters on the screen could date back to the dawn of cinema.
There have been over 10K nominations since the first Oscars in 1929, and women have represented just 14% of them. There also have been 449 nominations for best director until 2020, but only five of these went to women.
However, ladies are moving that rock, fixing the balance of diversity in movies and TV. Hollywood’s almost century-long gender gap is finally being reduced, and more movies are dedicated to women, starring women and making their roles memorable.
