Queens of Animation - Softcover


"You can't empower women without listening to their stories."      - Gloria Steinem

  • The Queens of Animation: The Untold Story of the Women Who Transformed the World of Disney and Made Cinematic History.
  • For the first time, bestselling author Nathalia Holt recounts the dramatic stories of the women who infiltrated the all-male domain of Disney's story and animation departments and used early technologies to create the rich artwork and unforgettable storylines that have become part of the American canon.

  • Over the decades - while battling sexism, domestic abuse, and workplace intimidation - these women also fought to transform the way female characters are depicted to young audiences.

  • Based on extensive interviews and exclusive access to archival and personal documents, The Queens of Animation reveals the vital contributions these women made to Disney's Golden Age and their continued impact on animated film making, culminating in the record-shattering Frozen, Disney's first female-directed full-length feature film.
