Gender stereotypes were prevalent in the top grossing films of 2015. Moviegoers were more likely to know the occupation of male characters than female characters, and more likely to know the marital status of females than males. In addition, moviegoers were much more likely to see male characters at work and actually working than female characters. -Itís a Manís (Celluloid) World: Portrayals of Female Characters in the Top 100 Films of 2015
