Warrior women crowd the screen; not so many behind the camera

On the positive side, Warrior Women — like Daisy Ridley’s Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Charlize Theron’s Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road and Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 — are prevalent on movie screens in 2015.

On the less-positive side, women behind the camera are not-so-prevalent in 2015. The new numbers are pretty much the same as the old numbers. Read this if you want the names and number of female filmmakers this year.

Besides the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission investigation into Hollywood employment practices, what else can be done to open doors for female filmmakers?

Alternatively, best ass-kicking babe in the movies this year? I vote for Carey Mulligan in Suffragette. You?
