This is a topical resource that provides a comprehensive look at the most influential women in Hollywood cinema across a wide-range of occupations rarely found together in a single volume.

• Enables a fuller understanding of the many complicated challenges women have faced historically and currently in Hollywood filmmaking

• Offers a unique blend of film history and industry information, cohesively presenting them both in one place

• Reaches beyond the more commonly discussed categories of women who have had important roles throughout Hollywood film history, such as directors and actresses, although they too are included

• Examines women's visibility and representation in Hollywood in the context of the history of the film industry for students
