The Other 50% - New Developments

The latest figures on percentages of women working in features are out.  Women make up 5% of the directors of the top 250 box office grossing films of 2011 - up 2% from 2012, but down 4% from 1998 numbers.

And Sundance announces a new partnership with Women in Film to track the progress of women directors.   The headline on that one is a bit misleading.

Is Bridesmaids the reason for the sudden interest?  Or is this just (another) watershed moment?
