Study: Female Nudity Is Almost Three Times As Likely as Male Nudity In Hollywood Films

Women are almost three times as likely as their male counterparts to appear in a state of undress in Hollywood movies, according to a new report. The annual Report on the Status of Women and Girls in California found that 26% of female characters in the top 100 films of 2014 at the US box office appeared either nude or partially nude, compared to just 9% for male characters. Just 12% of films featured a female in the lead role, and only 23% of characters identified as in employment were women (compared to 46% of the US workforce). The photo above, of course, is Henry Cavill and Amy Adams in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
