Dames, Divas & Dynamos:

A Survey of Women in Hollywood--

The history of women in Hollywood seldom gets past the actresses who have graced the silver screen. And while their story is important on their own merits, women have also, since the early days, been active in producing, in studio work, in politics, and in fashioning the films we see today. Quiet on the set!
