Women need the chance to play a lead character in more films in order to improve how they are viewed in society. Star Wars has an immense following and would be a great place to start.

      If they did that, it will be equally as good if a man did it.

      As a child, I desperately wanted to play with Star Wars figures, but was told I couldn't get them, because they were "boy" toys. Let's make sure all children see themselves reflected in this modern myth.

      The lack of female leads in massive media has a direct effect on the untapped potential of half of our entire world population. By giving girls confidence in themselves and what ever their passions are means not only more women leaders, scientists, engineers and innovators, but more skilled and passionate people in general.

      I would like to see a big budget franchise have a main female character so my daughter can look up to her
