Show Of Hands: Yet Another Depressing Infographic, Anyone?

Sorry if this graphic renders huge but, hey, it`s worth seeing. In glorious, depressing detail.

The shocker for me was that Lena Dunham was the first woman honored by the DGA. It`s the 21st century and, really, this is just happening now. Really?

Bright side:  It`s great to be inspired by women who are really at the top of their game. Especially Ava DuVernay. I had a chance to hear her speak at TIFF this past year. She is awesome. All the women listed here are doing amazing and inspiring work. There`s lots out there to get inspired by. That`s the good news. So let`s focus on that for the moment.

Thanks to the New York Film Academy.
