EVENT DETAILS

Presented LIVE on Zoom

How much do you really know about Hollywood trailblazers like Anna May Wong, Ida Lupino, Dorothy Dandridge, or Elaine May? In her illustrated history, Renegade Women in Film and TV, film critic Elizabeth Weitzman blends biographical profiles and exclusive interviews with legends like Rita Moreno and Barbra Streisand to reveal the accomplishments of women who've graced the big and small screens, worked behind the scenes, and succeeded in the eras before #MeToo and Time's Up. Join us as Weitzman shares extraordinary stories and rare film clips from the last century of pioneering women in cinema. 

Pick up a copy of Weitzman's Renegade Women in Film and TV at the online NYHistory Store
