Identifying Online Resources

From an initial list of links found from typing in related words on Google to the subject I am studying, I have narrowed it down and organized the resources I will be using for information. I will go into more depth with them now that they have been identified, meaning I will find and note down the useful information from these pages. They are:

Stats

Online article:

“ But what are they writing about? The report notes that back in the mid-1990s, women were making more top movies than they are today. (As if we needed more grist for the mill of 90s nostalgia.) In 2013’s top-grossing movies, women accounted for only 16 percent of important positions behind the scenes, including directors, writers, executive producers, producers, cinematographers, and editors. Likewise, in one television category, forward movement has been so incremental as to be nearly immeasurable: “the number of episodes directed by white men fell from 73 percent to 72 percent.” Progress? Only a percentile.

Unsurprisingly, this bad news behind the scenes has had an effect on what appeared onscreen. Female actors in the top 2013 films garnered barely more than a quarter of the speaking roles and narration opportunities. On the other hand, in those films where women did have roles, actresses received “more roles with speaking parts and fewer gigs zeroing in on their sexuality.” http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2014/02/24/numbers-dont-lie-white-men-still-dominate-media/
