Hollywood’s lady problem: 30% representation?

The Hunger Games

Well, here’s a factoid for you: Only 30% of the speaking characters in last year’s 100 top-grossing films of 2012 were women. (Here’s those 100 films – how many of them were led by women? By my count, 12, the top one being The Hunger Games.) And that’s only the beginning of the facepalm-worthy figures.

And that’s just in front of the camera. Behind the camera? Well.
