It's not just a lack of female directors and writers we have in the film industry, a study of Rotten Tomatoes by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film reveals that men outnumber women by 73% to 27% as film critics.

Martha Lauzen who wrote the study 'Thumbs Down 2016: Top Film Critics and Gender' reports that '34% of reviews written by women are of films that feature at least one female protagonist, compared with only 24% of reviews written by men.'
