Personal Project Proposal – Elena DeLuccia

I hope that I can show the issues that women face in the entertainment industry regarding the wage gap, sexism and other challenges. I’ll highlight women working behind the scenes, women onscreen as well as female critics in the film spectrum.

I plan on using data acquired San Diego State’s Center for the Study of Women in Film & Television, Forbes, Entertainment Weekly, and Variety to put together charts through Highcharts, infographics through infogram, as well as an interactive chart through nvd3. Each will show the three different aspects of the industry that I mentioned.

I have written a personal essay to go along with the data, which also provides more factual info. This would be more of a personal piece with journalistic aspects.
