The latest study on gender equality in Hollywood found that last year, women accounted for 9percent of the directors of the 250 top-grossing domestic films. This might not sound great,but it’s an improvement over 2014, when women made up just 7 percent of directors forthose films. The 2015 result put women on par with the level achieved in 1998.

Compiled by San Diego State University and now in its 18th year, “The Celluloid Ceiling” reportcomes a month after the Directors Guild of America, deflecting the A.C.L.U.’s claim that theorganization did not sufficiently back women directors, released its own similarly bleak figures.The guild found that in 2013 and 2014, women accounted for 6.4 percent of directors, figures itdrew from features produced by companies that were signatories to its collective bargainingagreement. The guild also released findings showing which studios had hired no female orminority directors in those years.

“The Celluloid Ceiling” used data from all top-grossing films and included documentaries andanimated features. “Pitch Perfect 2,” with Elizabeth Banks at the helm, was the highest-rankingfilm directed by a woman; with $184 million at the North American box office, it ranked No. 12for the year, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

In terms of behind-the-scenes female employment, researchers found women accounted for 26percent of producers,22 percent of editors,20 percent of executive producers, 11 percent ofwriters and 6 percent of cinematographers in 2015. The report also delved into data drawn fromthe top 100 as well as the top 500 grossing films, and reiterated earlier findings that films withat least one female director led to higher numbers of women being employed behind thescenes.
