What does "it is becoming more and more common" mean to you? I can't speak for wherever you live, but here is the States women are making up more and more of the work force and are becoming a larger percentage of primary-income earners.

As far as movie characters go, the statistics are not all that favourable to women.
Then it's pretty simple: withhold your money from those productions that you don't feel meet you expectations. If enough people feel the same way, then things will change.
