Course detail: OSH122 - When Women Wrote Hollywood: Returning to Gender Parity
Prior to 1925, women wrote 50 percent of all produced films. In 2016, that percentage was 14 percent. What changed? In this course, we'll learn about the fabulous female screenwriters of the silent era and look at the way stories and characters changed over decades. From Frances Marion, who still holds the record for Oscars, to the Golden Era with Mae West and married writing teams, to television where IF there was a woman in the room she was still called a "girl." This course will introduce you to women in film you should know.
