It’s been a difficult year, especially for women’s rights, and we’re staring down some serious fights. In this sort of atmosphere, it’s more important than ever for women to be well-represented on television. Which is why we’re following the advice of an extraordinary champion for women – we will never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.
We’ve tried to include a more intersectional lineup in this year’s Midseason Review and included a few more important metrics (because we can do better, too). We also plan to go a little deeper into the quality of representation on each show, which we’ll share in one or more future posts.
For now, we’re pleased to unveil the second annual Midseason Review (or in the case The Fall and Insecure, full seasons), tracking representation on measures including the Bechdel Test, the Mako Mori Test, the DuVernay Test, and the Lexa Pledge.
