Geena Davis on Gender Equality

Academy Award–winner Geena Davis spoke about gender equality in today’s media as speaker for the Park Distinguished Visitor Series this past March. The actor founded the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which gathers statistics on gender representation in film and television. “If we don’t give women the opportunity to be inspired by female characters,” she said, “we’re cheating them out of the most powerful part of experiencing a movie.”​
