Indian films show women attractive

The first-ever United Nations global study of female characters in films across the world opined that Indian films have a significantly higher prevalence of sexualisation of female characters and the movies score low in depicting women in significant speaking roles such as engineers and scientists. The study also reported that female characters only comprise 22.5 per cent of the global film workforce, whereas male characters form 77.5 per cent.

India tops the chart in showing attractive women with some nudity in its movies with 35 per cent and about 24.9 per cent show female characters in less than one-quarter of all speaking roles. India had 9.1 per cent female directors and female producers are only 15.2 per cent below than the global average which is 22 per cent. Another important thing, the study reported is females are missing in action and adventure flicks.

This study analysed popular films released between January 2010 and May 2013 across the global film industries that include Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea, US, UK.
