Hi, I'm a student in UK. Could you please help me with some data on women directors (for my project)?

  • How many women directors are at present in the Cinema business (& and in compare to the total of directors)?
  • Who is the biggest corporation that have the biggest number of successful women in this area?
  • Could you provide some names of the most talented at present?

Much obliged and grateful. Thank you in advance - Svetlana

I actually just read an article (in Equity Magazine) on the female head of Universal Pictures - she is one of three women to head a major movie studio. But that's obviously only one area of women in the movie business. To learn other statistics, I suggest you contact some of the following organizations as this is their area of expertise:

All of these organizations should have a website, but if you have trouble locating them, let me know and I can put you in contact with them. As for general statistics on women in corporations (i.e. beyond the music industry), you should contact Catalyst, an organization that does just that - counts the number of women directors and executives in major corporations. They also encourage greater female representation in leadership positions in those workplaces. I hope that helps - good luck.
