Women were an integral part of early cinema, both in front of and behind the camera. Then the studios rose to dominance and women were sidelined. For much of cinema men dominated behind the camera. Even those women who played vital roles in cinema were under appreciated and not sufficiently celebrated. Only recently has the balanced begun to be redressed. This blog is a celebration of the female voices of cinema. Their films, their visions and the fight to have a place behind the camera. Telling stories that matter to them.
