Gender Inequality and Screenwriters

The Writers' Guild | Reports | May 23rd 2018

"Only 16% of working film writers in the UK are female, and only 14% of prime-time TV is female-written. These are just two of the shocking findings in a new, independent report commissioned by WGGB.

The report, Gender Inequality and Screenwriters, was funded by the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) and authored by Alexis Kreager with Stephen Follows.

It spans a whole decade and reveals that TV shows and films written by women in the UK have flatlined during that period, with no consistent improvement in gender representation."
