Study: Women, Hispanics, disabled under-represented in Hollywood

LOS ANGELES (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Women, Hispanics, and the disabled are among the most under-represented groups in Hollywood films.

That's according to a study by the University of Southern California, examining inequality on screen and off.

The report says women made up less than a third of speaking characters from the 100 top-grossing fictional films of 2016.

Women of color were the least represented.

The report says that until companies adopt solutions to combat exclusionary hiring and casting practices, change is unlikely.
