Where Are the Women?: crunching the numbers

11 April 2016 1:41 PM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

• only 22% of 2015’s movies had female protagonists

• best and worst representations of women on film in 2015 (and the average Watw score for the year)

• critics are slightly more likely to rate a film highly if it represents women well

• mainstream moviegoers are not turned off by films with female protagonists

• movies that represent women well are just as likely to be profitable as movies that don’t, and are less risky as business propositions

The Where Are the Women? project was designed to drill deep down into the films of 2015 in order to determine how well — or how poorly — they represented women.

(And, technically speaking, they’re the Jameson Empire Awards, since Jameson Irish whiskey began sponsoring them in their 14th year. Cheers to that!)

With The Force Awakens being part of the beloved Star Wars mythology and breaking box-office records left and right at record speed, it’s a bit surprising Mad Max outpaced it. It goes to show that both fans adore this instant classic as much as the critics do, getting nods for:

• Best Film

• Best Director (George Miller)

• Best Actor (Tom Hardy)

• Best Actress (Charlize Theron, who should teach a »
