Well? I posted evidence about women's increased buying power.
But what's the solution being proposed?

To ask women only to patronise movies demonstrating equality? How would that be implemented on a practical level?

To ask women to fund movies demonstrating equality? I think we'd need to do an analysis of the gender divide among the wealthiest investors to see what likely impact that could have overall.

I think trying to raise awareness that the divide exists among both male and female script writers and male and female casting directors and encourage them to think about their characters more equally is a simpler solution but I don't see why all three couldn't be attempted.
