Film Makers: 15 Groundbreaking Women Directors (Women of Power #5) Cover Image


In Hollywood, women don’t have to be in front of the cameras to shine.

Each of the 15 women profiled in Film Makers share a common trait: she is, as Shonda Rhimes says, “First. Only. Different.”

These phenomenal women have entered into the film and television industry often being the first woman at a prestigious film school, the first woman to win an award usually given to their male counterparts, or even the first BIPOC to be nominated as—and win—best director at the Academy Awards.

While their resumes are impressive, it is how they live their lives that has made a greater impact in the communities they serve.
