It would be difficult to argue that women receive equal representation to men within the film industry. According to the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film, women comprised only 16% of all directors, executive producers, producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors working in the top 250 domestic grossing films of 2009. This marked a 3% decline from 2001. Women accounted for only 7% of film directors in 2009, which was a 2% decline from 2008.
