A new study by the Media, Diversity and Social Change Initiative at USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism released a week before the 88th Academy Awards finds a startling lack of diversity in Hollywood studios. From the films, television shows, and even boards of major media companies, Hollywood remains male-centric, monochromatic and overwhelmingly heterosexual.
This study also comes as Hollywood studios are being investigated by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for gender discrimination. This examination was prompted by women who pointed out the lack of films produced, written, and directed by women.
