What percentage of film crew are female?

Writer / producer Stephen Follows has released the findings of a study into the gender of film crews over the last 20 years and the results are quite shocking:

  • Women made up only 23% of crew members on the 2,000 highest grossing films of the past 20 years
  • In 2013, women accounted for 22% of crew members and under 2% of directors. Only one of the top 100 films had a female composer
  • The only departments to have a majority of women are make-up, casting and costume
  • Off all of the departments, the camera and electrical department is the most male, with only 5% women
