Geena Davis: Contributions to the Future of Equality in Film
2 August 2015
The purpose of the research is to demonstrate the influence Geena Davis’s work is having in the film industry’s understanding of gender bias. The focus is on Davis’s efforts to draw attention to the under-representation of women in film in both the production process and final product. The information was gathered from online resources including the Internet Movie Database, televised interviews, and The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. The paper includes a brief biography, a selection of notable feminist works, and statistical examples about the roles of women working in Hollywood. The paper will provide valuable groundwork for the further study of diversity and inclusion in media production.
