Gender inequality

Gender inequality is the idea that women and men are not equal. Gender inequality refers to unequal treatment or perceptions of individuals wholly or partly due to their gender. It arises from differences in socially constructed gender roles. Gender systems are often dichotomous and hierarchical; gender binary systems may reflect the inequalities that manifest in numerous dimensions of daily life. Gender inequality stems from distinctions, whether empirically grounded or socially constructed. (On differences between the sexes, see Sex and psychology.)

Gender Inequality in the Film Industry

The wage gap between men and women in white collar jobs has become very apparent and controversial as of late. This article shows that wage gap in the movie industry as well as other gender inequalities in films. Did you know that in the movies from 2007-2012 only 30% of the speaking characters were women? And that only 10.7% of movies had a gender balanced cast? And don't even get me started on non-binary and transgender representation!
