Dr. Stacy L. Smith, Founder of the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative proudly said "Our research has shown that inclusion behind the camera leads to greater inclusion on screen. We're encouraged that last year, 20% of the directors of Netflix original films were women and we are excited to celebrate these female creators on International Women's Day."
