"45% of the dramas we've commissioned at the BBC in the last two years are from female writers… It's not 50:50, yet, but it's more than double where we were in the past," says Charlotte Moore, the BBC's director of content. She adds that we're "just at the start of a very long journey to address a huge historical failing of female voices."
