Emma Watson: "I'm a massive geek when it comes to data"



From a Glamour interview with Geena Davis. Thanks to Harlow.

Her methods are not lost on Emma Watson, the heir apparent to her brand of activism. "Geena's work has been a huge inspiration to me," she writes in an email. "I'm a massive geek when it comes to data and am constantly citing research from her institute." Watson proves it, adding in the note that women make up less than one third of all speaking characters in film and under a quarter of fictional onscreen leads.

Another stat;

Of the 123 million young people between the ages of 15 and 24 who cannot read or write, 61 percent of them are women.


But good on Emma for focussing on the really important stats.
