Symposiums on Gender in Media

Global Symposiums 2014

Our global symposiums were held:

New York, McGraw Hill, Sept. 22

Washington D.C., U.S. Institute of Peace, Sept. 23

Los Angeles, AMC Century City 15, Oct. 6

Our symposiums convene leading CEOs and decision makers in the entertainment industry, corporations and non-profit organizations interested in the empowerment of women and girls.

We presented research findings from the first-ever Global Gender in Film Study, Gender Bias without Borders, which analyzes female character representation and portrayals in the top 11 theatrical box office grossing countries.

The study investigates each country’s locally produced films including: Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea, United Kingdom, and United States. This is a quantitative study that looks at a number of key data points including representation comparisons, portrayals, attributes, sexuality, and careers.

The symposiums centered around high-level panel discussions focusing on the impact of global film on women and girls as well as best practices to drive change.
