Fascinating women in history who should be remembered and celebrated.

History has celebrated the accomplishments of men since the beginning of record-keeping. Women, on the other hand, have historically been socially regulated to keeping the line going by giving birth to male heirs and supporting their husbands.

In the future, a higher production of female-focused biopics is expected, following the example of the film which celebrates the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, known as “the world’s worst opera singer.”  Another possible subject for a biopic could be the Chinese Dowager Empress Cixi who started as a lowly concubine but rose to be the Empress of China in 1850 and went so far as to have the Emperor arrested. And we might see a film about Effa Manley, the black co-owner of the Newark Eagles baseball team during the 1930s and 1940s.
