OSCARS 2013--Continuing lack of women nominees

Last year, there were six Academy Awards categories with no women
nominated at all. This year, that figure is up to seven. The numbers
tell their own story: across all categories, 2013 nominees total 140
men and just 35 women.

In a film industry where 78% of the top-grossing 250 films of 2012 had
no female writers, and 89% of them had no female directors, the
Hollywood boys’ club needs to start admitting women. Watch and tweet
along with us womensmediacenter.com
as we tell the film industry that women deserve more work in Hollywood,
and more recognition for the work that they get.

For equality,
