Gender Inequality in Film Infographic by the New York Film Academy Updated in 2018

March 8, 2018 The New York Film Academy (NYFA) has updated its original infographic from 2013 to present current research on the representation of women in the entertainment industry, released in early 2018.

With TIME’S UP™ and Frances McDormand’s rousing Oscars speech highlighting Inclusion Riders drawing attention to the disparities in pay and representation for women in the entertainment industry, NYFA’s updated Gender Inequality in Film infographic supports the conversation around gender equality by collecting and sharing findings from USC Annenberg’s Media, Diversity & Social Change Initiative, Women’s Media Center, and SDSU’s 2017 Celluloid Ceiling Report, and more than 40 sources.

“With all that’s happening in the film industry, the New York Film Academy hopes to contribute what we can to the conversation with this infographic. It can be used as a reference and an educational tool to raise further awareness and inspire leaders within the entertainment industry, and beyond,” explains NYFA Chair of Documentary Andrea Swift. “It is an accessible way to interact with key information to support the movement to reach 50/50 by 2020.”

To further support the conversation around gender inclusion, NYFA will host Women’s History Month events throughout March across its various campus locations. An industry panel at NYFA Los Angeles will feature CMO of Variety Dea Lawrence, Sr. VP Marketing at Warner Bros. Kelly Gilmore, and 3-time Emmy-winning actress Barbara Bain, among others. Other events include film screenings and a raffle for tickets to the Women’s International Film & Arts Festival.
