7:11 am
says diplomacy has failed. o that leaves us with the two extremes and the risks. there are risks associated with both regimes. i think this is going to be the most significant decision the president of the united states makes during this press senndy in four or eight years. think this is the defining national security issue of his presidency. >> if you can't really bomb. if you say you can't really negotiate, what is that option of containment? won't north korea also seek to sell this technology to other rogue states? >> the object of it involves convincing them, making absolutely clear to them the way we did to the soviet union that if they use those weapons or sell those weapons, that will be the end of the regime. we have the make that crystal clear to them. >> and how? >> you do it through your actions and you do it through your words, right? you send somebody to north korea

animated movies was led by a woman. the u.s. study examines a quality in the film industry. researchers looked at 900 movies and more than 39,000 characters over the past decade to measure the changes in diversity. first on "cbs this morning," professor stacy smith, a coresearchers of the study is with us. pgood morning, professor. it's good to see you. >> good to be here, thank you. >> break this down for snus we look at 100 of the top films, every character who utters one wrd to the protagonist. we'll get a variety of genders. >> you've been doing these studies since 2007. what have you found when you look at those numbers in terms of diversity? >> that's a great kwerquestion, vlad. it clocks in a gender ratio of 2
8:35 am
37b9 males to every one female. we also soo an epidemic of intersectional invisibility. we look at how many films of the top 100 last year are missing different groups. over 45 don't mistle a single female black speaking character on screen. 66 completely devoid. 72 don't feature one talking latina and over 90 completely erase the lgbt group. we don't have a diversity but an inclusion process on screen and behind the scenes. >> what if there were more executives with more diversity in offices in hollywood? >> we've examined that. our federal card study in 2016 sees few women are at the upper echelons of power. what we have is when there are
8:36 am
female directors in the chair with short films and independent features, you see more females on the screen. we need more female directors to be calling the shots behind the camera. >> you see reekse witherspoon directing mievs and bringing women in. >> patty jenkins and wonder woman or kathryn bigelow coming up with "detroit." >> what's inhibits the studios from this this exclusion in. >> there's exclusionary hiring practices. last year 4.9%. 1.2% feature women, we really see that there's exclusion when it comes to who's getting to call the shots.
8:37 am
only three. our findings condemn a pretty condemning exclusion. >> why is that? the question is why are they not hiring if in fact they were hiring? what factors would cause them to do more? more successful films of a certain kind or what? >> absolutely. there's an argument and often they lead to the gender of the character with the lead director. if only 34 films feature a colleague, it gives females fewer opportunitieses out of the top 100 last year. women aren't on the consideration list. we asked 59 executives how many top of mind directors could they think of. the mode was zero. the average was three. people aren't recalling female directors to consider them across the range of these top directing jobs. >> is there also just a shortage of good scripts and opportunities? there's a good selection in the
8:38 am
direction rather than opportunity. >> that's a great question. there are amazing stories to be told and the female prowess. it's the lack of decision-making and green leaning of who says these stories can move through. >> do you think the film's success will make a difference? >> it should but often it doesn't. 900 films, year in and year out. >> even with a film like wonder woman, patty jenkins, making so much money, doesn't it always come down to particulars and sense? >> it should when ha of the box office is women. 49% is women of color. you would think, why are we leaving money on the table.
