Women EPs Influence Female Employment

When women run the show, more women get hired. That’s the major finding of the latest study of female employment in television by Dr. Martha Lauzen, executive director of the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University. The annual “Boxed In” survey, now in its 18th year, found a clear correlation between shows that had a least one female creator or executive producer and the level of female representation throughout the production, from actors to editors.
