“The world of filmmaking and television production is dominated by men’s voices. We are not seeing enough representations that are actually from a girl or a woman’s perspective,” said Mary Celeste Kearney, associate professor of film, television, and theatre and a senior fellow in the gender studies program at the University of Notre Dame.
Kearney’s research has focused primarily on gender, youth, and media culture. She noted that the presence of women in the media industries has not increased substantially despite the rising popularity of filmmaking in girls’ culture.
