Around 50% of films made from 1911 to 1925 were written by women. Thanks to The Nitrate Diva on Twitter, I now know this, and so do you.
The longer I'm a part of the online feminist community, the more I learn about how everything awesome was invented by or would have been impossible without women. So many things were made popular by women, and then once they became mainstream, men took it over and declared it was all their idea and then kept women out. Literature. Fantasy. Sci-fi. Computer science. And now film.
You're welcome for all your favorite films, guys. Fucking ungrateful credit-stealers.
