Female characters have a 5% drop in representation in the highest grossing films of 2017




--The Center for the study of women in television & film have released a study stating that even with female-fronted studio releases like Wonder Woman, The Last Jedi and Girls Trip, female representation onscreen dropped 5% in 2017 to 24%.
--The study also acknowledges that diversity is lacking.
--74% of the women on screen is made up of white women. Black female characters increased 2% to 16% in 2017. Latina female representation went from 3% to 7%. Asian women increased from 6% to 7%.
--The study thinks that better representation behind the camera will influence on screen representation.
