It is important to understand the context of International Women’s Day in the film industry and its meaning within today’s society.

International Women’s Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on March 8th. 

It is a day to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women in all aspects of life, from politics to business, education and social activism. 

This day serves as a reminder that there is still much work to be done in order for women to achieve true gender equality. 

On this day, we are reminded of the importance of standing together and supporting each other in our fight for gender justice. 

International Women’s Day is an important day in the film industry as it highlights the contributions of women in film and celebrates their achievements. 

It is a day to recognise the unique talents and perspectives that women bring to the film industry, and to encourage more female filmmakers to pursue their dreams. 

On this day, we celebrate the contributions of women in the industry, from directors, producers, writers, actors, cinematographers and more.

International Women’s Day also serves as a reminder of how far we still have to go in achieving gender parity in the film industry, and encourages us all to continue striving for progress.

This day also provides an opportunity for us to come together and support each other in our respective roles in order to create a more inclusive environment for everyone.

Did you know that 41 of 2021’s top 100 films featured a female lead or co-lead? 

Women account for 50% of moviegoers, so we want to see more equality within the film industry, and more strong female leads in movies.

The problem of gender inequality in the film industry is not just limited to on-screen representation; there are also issues behind-the-scenes such as unequal pay for female writers, directors, producers and other crew members.

The lack of female voices in decision-making roles also affects what stories get told and who gets hired for projects.

In the top 100 grossing films of 2019, women represented only 10.7% of directors, 19.4% of writers and 24.3% of producers.

It would be interesting to see how these poor statistics have changed over the past couple of years.

Are you watching the Oscars this year?

Women at the 94th Academy Awards won 10 of the 43 individual Oscar statuettes handed out in 2022 last year, which was the worst showing for female winners since the 2018 Academy Awards. 

This equates to only 23% of Oscars, so we hope this year’s results will be very different for women in the film industry.

Despite the progress made in recent years, there is still a long way to go before women are truly equal with men when it comes to representation and opportunities in the film industry.

It’s important that we continue to push for gender equality in the film industry so that all voices can be heard and respected equally.
