The Women Who Ran Hollywood

J. E. Smyth

  • A new history of Hollywood that puts women at the center of production
  • Looks beyond directors to the women who wrote, produced, edited, and designed the films
  • Challenges belief that feminism and women's issues died between 1930 and 1950
  • Argues that things were better for women in Hollywood during the studio system than post 1960
