Dr. Deb Verhoeven, Canada 150 Chair in Gender and Informatics, Research on Gender Imbalance in the Film Industry Featured on the SSHRC Website

Although gender inequity in the film industry has been a well-documented problem for decades, the industry remains heavily dominated by men. That fact was underscored for Australian researcher Deb Verhoeven when she received an email showing women’s participation rates in her country’s film industry were lower than when she had started working as an industry lobbyist 30 years beforehand. Now Verhoeven, a Canada 150 Research Chair in Gender and Cultural Informatics at the University of Alberta, is launching a new project that looks at the issue from a different angle.
