Hollywood’s shift towards creating and telling more inclusive stories is acknowledged by W mag and the supporting article also expresses: “At the movies, 2018 was truly the year of the woman. In the past, that claim has been made optimistically, but this time around weighty female-centric films abounded. Actresses have, thankfully, moved beyond the sexy girlfriend or loyal helpmate clichés. Along with these much-needed female points of view, there was also more racial diversity—and irrefutable proof that audiences are clamoring for new kinds of stories, featuring communities that have been previously ignored. The terrific superhero film Black Panther made $1.35 billion worldwide; Crazy Rich Asians, $238 million. Boy Erased, about gay-conversion therapy, shined a light on a horrible practice that, disturbingly, is still around today.”
