Breakthrough women

On a sound stage or on the global stage, these pros are setting the standard

It’s been stated by more than a few prominent women in the industry that the day we stop publishing “Women in Showbiz” issues, the perception (or misconception) of women as an oppressed minority will change for the better. There may be some truth in this, since women are omnipresent from the highest executive suite levels to the most specialized craft positions. However, it’s not our intention in this particular book to point out inequities — which still exist — but to celebrate gains and the unique contribution women bring to the table in all sectors of entertainment. The following breakthrough achievers are examples of professionals who have paved the way for others to follow. We applaud their leadership and their talent and their tenacity.
