April’s free ebook is here! This time, we’re giving away Pink-Slipped: What Happened to Women in the Silent Film Industries? by Jane M. Gaines:
Women held more positions of power in the silent film industry than at any other time in American motion picture history. Women did it all: acting, producing, screenwriting, stunt work, and much more. So why has modern film history mostly forgotten about these influential women? Gaines explores what might have happened against a backdrop of feminist theory and the limits of historiography.
