Many called Frances’ speech the best of the night in which she celebrated women in the industry by calling on them to stand during her speech and instructed the men in the room to take meanings with each every single one of them in order to get more women in positions where there is a lack of representation.
Pretty dope moment right? 110%
Frances then concluded her speech with these two magic words.
Some were a little confused by exactly what Frances meant by that, so much so that there was a huge spike in Google searches for the word pairing.
In simple terms, an inclusion rider is a provision that actors and actresses can ask (or demand) to have inserted into their contracts, which would require a certain level of diversity among a film’s cast and crew.
For example, an A-list actor who is in high demand and in the process of negotiating their terms for joining a film, can use an inclusion rider, that has also been called an equity rider, to insist that according to Stacy L. Smith QUOTE – “…speaking characters should match the gender distribution of the setting for the film, as long as it's sensible for the plot.”
NPR’s Eric Deggans broke down a largely scaled published data analysis of representation in film saying QUOTE - "The study, titled "Inclusion or Invisibility? Comprehensive Annenberg Report on Diversity in Entertainment," found just one-third of speaking characters were female (33.5 percent), despite the fact that women represent just over half the population in America. Just 28.3 percent of characters with dialogue were from non-white racial/ethnic groups, though such groups are nearly 40 percent of the U.S. population. ...Just 3.4 percent of film directors were female, and only 7 percent of films had a cast whose balance of race and ethnicity reflected the country's diversity. In broadcast TV, 17 percent of directors were female and 19 percent of programs were ethnically balanced."
Following her epic speech, Frances McDormand told reporters that she just found out about the concept of an inclusion rider last week saying QUOTE - "And so, the fact that I just learned that after 35 years of being in the film business — we're not going back. This is going to be the struggle when it comes to representation, when it comes to harassment and assault. Is there going to be follow-on? Are the contracts going to change? Is the legislation going to change? Will the bylaws of the professional organizations change?"
