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 redefined the film and television industry, winning awards historically given to a male counterpart, being the only woman in a writers' room, or portraying stories no one else could tell.

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


"Packed with fascinating film history, this informative book will inspire the next generation of women filmmakers. Look out, Hollywood!" —Susanna Reich, award-winning author of José! Born to Dance

"Engaging [and] impassioned." — Kirkus Reviews

"Aspiring directors or young film buffs will be inspired by the 15 women directors featured in this Women of Power series title."--Booklist
