Hollywood: Her Story: An Illustrated History of Women and the Movies

Hollywood: Her Story: An Illustrated History of Women and the Movies

The American public (and the public around the world) remain fascinated with film stars. A Timeline of Women's Contributions to the Movies is a unique book about the film industry in that the format is a timeline that will include a picture of each woman or the film or technology in which she was involved, and a short description of her significant accomplishments. Quotes and other pictures are placed throughout the book to provide a rich historical context of the societal and political events occurring at that time. The format allows the reader to move quickly from woman to woman and from achievement to achievement. In spite of women purchasing half of the movie tickets sold in the U.S. today, women and girls are chronically underrepresented in the mainstream film industry, both behind the camera and on the screen. It is important, therefore, to show that women have been involved with the film industry in every capacity since its founding in 1896.
