Why #diversity matters.⁣⠀
We've got the numbers to prove it!⁣⠀
⁣⠀
At the Geena Davis Institute we believe in intersectionality and spotlighting those whose stories are not told, but deserve to be. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
While films with white leads have grossed more than films with leads of color for most of the past decade, this reversed in the past two years. In 2017, for example, films with leads of color earned $81.8 million compared to $70.3 million for films with white leads.⁣

While is may seem obvious, this research is important because the stories that we tell in entertainment media send a clear message about who matters most in our culture.⁣⠀

It’s #WorldStorytellingDay ! 📖 🌍 ⠀

We believe women and girls stories should be SEEN and HEARD! ⠀

“If they can see it, they can be it. I feel like we're going to see the needle move within the next five years, for the first time, and I think it will be great. I think once we get the ball rolling, then we can accomplish a lot.”⠀
-Geena Davis⠀
