Despite being the first female Jedi, Rey has yet to speak up in Star Wars (FYI no spoilers ahead)  https://www.latimes.com/projects/star-wars-movies-female-character-analysis/#nt=7030col1-main 

To find out why the first female heroine in the Star Wars trilogy doesn’t have much to do in the script, we counted up the interactions between major characters in all three movies.  https://www.latimes.com/projects/star-wars-movies-female-character-analysis/#nt=7030col1-main 

In the new movies, women simply aren’t talking to each other. Rey talks to Chewbacca more than the only other two women she interacts with, Maz and Leia, combined.  https://www.latimes.com/projects/star-wars-movies-female-character-analysis/#nt=7030col1-main 

Dig into our data: See who’s spoken to who in Star Wars, from the first words they said to each other to the last.  https://www.latimes.com/projects/star-wars-movies-female-character-analysis/#nt=7030col1-main
