On Diversity

So I'm browsing headlines and stumble across this little gem: "Furious 7" has an unusually racially and ethnically inclusive cast including actors who are white, black, Asian, Hispanic, male and female."

Why is gender included in a sentence talking about racial and ethnic diversity? One would assume that the female actresses have a race/ethnicity in addition to being female. At least, last time I checked I was both female and Caucasian. Maybe being female, the other becomes less important?

Even more, one has to ask...why is this considered newsworthy? Even for the entertainment section of CNN?
