Annually presented by the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism the top 100 of the U.s. box office with an investigation. It turns out that last year 68.6% of the more than 4,000 speaking roles in those films played by men and 31.4% by women. That is the same proportion as in 2007, when the school the study for the first time it ran.

It is also evident that women are also much more common -in part – from the clothes than men: 30% of the women are scantily clad, compared to 7.7% of men. Also what is the number of directors is concerned, the score for the women is not great: 92.5% of the regissseurs were men. Characters that are lesbian, homosexual or transgender, make up less than 1% of the speaking roles, to be exact, 32 of the 4.370. And yet, that is an improvement over the 19, 2014. In that year, the researchers found no transgender, in 2015, they found one. The research shows that since 2007, as well as no progress has been made in the number of blacks (12,2%), Latinos (5,3%) or Asians (3.9%) in the hollywood movies.
