Women Have More Leading Roles on TV Than Men, Data Shows


According to research conducted by Ampere Analysis, women hold more leading roles on TV than men, and they also play more diverse parts. The survey analyzed 251 dramas and found that 42 percent of them featured a sole female lead—the rest either featured male leads, or a group of people like couples or families, indicating that there are twice the amount of shows led by a sole female actress than a sole male. Overall, CW and NBC are the channels that headline the most female-led shows. In addition to stealing the lead spotlight, women also act in a more diverse range of professions compared to their male counterparts. While we still have more progress to make, this is an awesome sight to see.
