    The 90th Academy Awards saw the first woman to EVER be nominated for a 'best cinematography' award, and the 5th female director to be nominated for the 'best director' EVER.

    This graph below shows how unequal the nominations for each award were, with some categories not featuring women at all, and the stats are similar in industry.




    What's really interesting is that over 50% of film students are female, but they aren't getting the jobs once they graduate. There's no shortage of talent, but shortage of opportunities for women
