For decades women have been molding the way we watch both television and film. From cult sitcoms to bold, sexy dramas, audiences rarely know about the late night meetings, constant rejection and behind closed door handshakes that ultimately lead to a change in business culture.
Over the next two weeks we salute woman who have taken chances and used their power to promote change. Whether it be behind the camera, in the spotlight, in a corporate office on the fiftieth floor or embracing the pushing of the proverbial envelope, these woman stepped out of the box, leaving the world of normalcy and setting the tone for our future.
While there is no way to grant every Female Trailblazer their earned acknowledgment, we highlight fifteen that have pushed down walls and set forth a new standard when it comes to what, how and why we choose to be entertained by way of the big and small screen.
For the next two weeks we will add a new name to the list every day and explain our rationale for their inclusion. Check back daily to gain some insight on the power and influence that you may have never known about.
