Women, Sexuality, and Sexual Politics From the Women’s Media Center (www.womensmediacenter.com)…. The media serves as a mirror for society; when the image reflected back to us is warped or incomplete as a result of bias or lack of representation, we all suffer. And when it comes to women in entertainment, the image is both warped and incomplete. According to a new study from Dr. Martha M. Lauzen of San Diego State University, in 2007, women comprised just 15 percent of all directors, executive producers, producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors working on the top 250 domestic grossing films. This represents a decline of 2 percentage points from 1998 and represents no change from 2006 (source: “ The Celluloid Ceiling ,” 2007).
