Click here for the 2019-20 Arts & Culture Benefits >>


About the Book:
Renegade Women in Film and TV blends stunning illustrations, fascinating biographical profiles, and exclusive interviews with icons like Barbra Streisand, Rita Moreno, and Sigourney Weaver to celebrate the accomplishments of 50 extraordinary women through­out the history of entertainment. Each profile highlights the groundbreaking accomplishments and essential work of pioneers from the big and small screens, offering little-known facts about household names (Lucille Ball, Oprah Win­frey, Nora Ephron) and crucial introductions to overlooked pioneers (Alla Nazimova, Anna May Wong, Frances Marion).

From 19th century iconoclast Alice Guy Blaché to 21st century trail­blazer Ava DuVernay, Renegade Women in Film & TV honors the women who succeeded against all odds, changing their industry in front of the camera and behind the scenes.
