It’s National Women’s Equality Day. Approximately 50% of American movies made before 1925 were written by women; compare that with about 10% of movies these days. [Sources here and here.]

Since the dawn of cinema, women have been making meaningful contributions to the film industry behind the camera. Here are just a few of those distinguished ladies who made movies.

  • Alice Guy Blaché – actress, writer, cinematographer, producer, director
  • Lois Weber – actress, writer, producer, director
  • Cleo Madison – actress, writer, producer, director
  • Anita Loos – actress, writer, producer
  • Mary Pickford – actress, writer, producer, director
