Women In View reports break new ground
The latest Women in View on Screen report, launched at the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival in October 2015, tells us that women continue to remain significantly under-represented in key creative roles in Canadian screen-based media.
“ In the four years since the launch of the first On Screen report in 2012, awareness and concern about gender equity in media has grown considerably,” said WIV Executive Director and report author Rina Fraticelli. “What we need now is for that concern to fuel real change.”
On Screen is intended as a catalyst for dialogue. With these reports we aim to provide a clear, consistent, year-after-year snapshot of where and how our public investment is allocated, and where and how our media culture is – and is not – reflective of the capacity and vision of Canadian women as well as men. It is critical, though, that this information not be considered an end itself.
Illustrated with thought-provoking charts and graphics, these reports are a great resource for anyone interested in media diversity.
