At a press conference for his new movie "Once upon a time in Hollywood", star director Quentin Tarantino was asked why the female leading part in his film had fewer lines than her male counterparts. Tarantino refused to answer the question.
In fact, it wasn't the first time he was criticized for the way he depicts women in his films. In all ten films shown in our graphic there are fewer female roles and fewer lines uttered by women. A recent analysis by "Time" shows how much less women speak in Tarantino’s movies. Women are only cast in 36 percent of roles in these ten Tarantino films. However, their share of lines is even lower at 28 percent. The example of "Django Unchained" makes this particularly clear: 30.5 percent of roles are female, but their share of lines is only 7.6 percent combined.
