Charts

The following charts are for cumulative means. That is, the first data point is the first value, the second is the average of the first two values, the third is the average of the first three values, etc. I have included both shorter and extended versions of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I don't think it makes any difference.

Everything is for the percentage of female roles/items out of the total count or sum. That is, the percentage of credits that are female, the percentage of cast members wearing (for example) sexy clothing who are female, and the percentage of total sexy clothing events where the wearer is female.

Count = the number of people.
Sum = the number of events.

The first chart is of the films in the order I rated them. The second is the same films ordered alphabetically. The third is the same films ordered in reverse alphabetic order. I think it's obvious from this exercise that when you have enough films, you can afford to make mistakes, because the sheer size of the database absorbs variations.

Sexy Clothing/Nudity

As you can see, this category is highly gendered. Women get proportionally more sexy clothing or nudity than men do.

X-axis = cumulative mean; Y-axis = percent female

Intimate Touch

As you can see, this category is also highly gendered. The situation here is that intimate touch is more or less equally divided between men and women (with a bit of girl-on-girl action to take it above 50% female), but women have far fewer roles than men, so women are proportionally more likely to have to perform this kind of content.

X-axis = cumulative mean; Y-axis = percent female

Intimate Dialogue/Other Nonverbals

Same as for intimate touch, above. Except that I was including situations where people talk about intimate relationships with third parties, and it seems that men do more of that (in these films) than women do. Who knew?

X-axis = cumulative mean; Y-axis = percent female

Semi-intimate Touch

Now here we finally get gender equity. The proportion of semi-intimate touch (stuff that would be legal with a five-year-old, but is more intimate than shaking hands) is in proportion to the percentage of females in the cast.
