Geena Davis on damaging stereotypes of women onscreen

Posted Wednesday 02 Oct 2019

A study by the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media found that in film, women were four times more likely than men to be shown naked. The research analysed the 56 top-grossing films of 2018 in 20 countries. The promises of positive change for women on screen that followed her role in the groundbreaking film Thelma and Louise have failed to materialise, leaving girls today with few role models, Davis told The Guardian.
