Since Women’s History Month involves celebrating the achievements of women, why not spend it reading about the bad-ass female directors of Hollywood fighting for equality in entertainment?
Here’s five rad women setting new bars in Hollywood!
1. Kathryn Bigelow
Kathryn Bigelow is an American director, producer, screenwriter, working on countless award-winning works such as Near Dark, Strange Days and The Weight of Water. Bigelow even played a feminist newspaper editor in Borden’s 1983 film Born In Flames. However, Bigelow’s greatest achievement to date is that she is the only woman to have won the Academy Award for Best Director with her 2009 film The Hurt Locker. Such a trailblazer!
