Manage episode 288309462 series 2321745
For women’s history month, Courtney and Emily immersed themselves in the stories of the working women of the Walt Disney Animation studio during its classic and golden age. Often the story of women in the early days of Disney Animation begins in Ink and Paint, but author Nathalia Holt instead focused on the more male dominated work spaces like the story, concept art, and animation departments. Moved by the tribulations and triumphs of Bianca Majoli, Grace Huntington, Retta Scott, Sylvia Holland, and Mary Blair, Courtney and Emily reflect on the legacy of these women who were integral to the Disney animated features beloved today.
