Hollywood and Who Made It

Women Versus Hollywood is a fantastic book that looks at the contributions women have made to movie making through the last 130 years or so.

Written by film writer Helen O’Hara, she goes through the history of American film making starting in the late 19th century when women dominated the field, through the period where men took over once they found out that they could make money out of it, up until the early 21 century with the #metoo movement and recent high profile cases.

It’s a great read and strongly recommended for every film fan.
