The number of women working behind the scenes in Hollywood increased slightly over the last year, according to the annual Celluloid Ceiling study, which tracks women’s employment in the entertainment industry.

Reaching a historic high, women made up 20% of all directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors and cinematographers working on the top 100 and top 250 domestic-grossing films, according to the study, which was conducted by the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film at San Diego State University.
