Anything you can do, I can do better : study of females working in a male dominated industry : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
Women are a minority in the media industry. The positions the majority of females hold are associated with the female gender: hair stylists, costume designers, and make up artists. However, with Kathryn Bigelow's 2009 Best Director Oscar win, the lack of female involvement and the positions they hold have received increased attention. By focusing mainly on the question of why women are not equally employed in the business, I analyzed statistics, first-hand accounts, and personal experiences to help answer this question: are women a minority because of lack of confidence, lack of interest, or lack of opportunity?
