Gender representation in film is severely lacking. In any year, the top 250 movies have less than 5% of cinematographers, 10% of directors, and 20% of writers who are women (Study of Women in Television and Film). Ultimately, this means that women's stories get told less where it matters: in movies that get the most exposure. The goal of this section is to shine a light on women's stories in movies that are available on popular streaming services.
