11230: Dearth Of Cannes Dames.

Perhaps inspired by the Art Directors Club’s hypocritical 50/50 initiative or the inane whines of The 3% Conference, Hollie Rapello questioned the dearth of dames as Cannes Advertising Festival jurors in a post at the Why Moms Rule blog. Maybe there will also be complaints that the trophies just depict lions versus lionesses. Rapello calculated that women accounted for only 22% of the jurors overall—and she even created a cute little chart where jurors is misspelled (see above). Well, one thing is certainly clear: female Cannes judges undoubtedly still greatly outnumber Black, Latino, Asian and Native American judges.
