Where are the Women?

I found this short article on NYMag.com about gender ineqaulity in Hollywood movies since 2009. 

The study states that more than half the major "speaking" roles in movies belonged to men, yet women buy more than half of the number of movies tickets sold in the U.S. This reminded me of the Bechdel Test for Women clip that we watched in class a few weeks ago. I think the best question for this article would be why does it seem so difficult for actresses to land the lead role in movies?
