Women Making Movies

Lillian Gish was the first woman director of the Silent Era

Women have been making movies since the very beginning of cinema.  This guide will trace that history. Within this research guide you will find links to print books, eBooks, scholarly articles, films and web resources. These items will help you to complete your coursework in this discipline.


Welcome to the Axinn Library subject guide for Women Making Movies.  This guide includes suggested tools for research about women and film.  By using the above tabs, you will be directed to the various areas. 


As you will see in the Profile box on the right, you may schedule a research appointment with me during the hours listed. If you need help immediately, please email me and, if I am available, I will be happy to help you.

If I am not available, go to the librarian at the Reference Desk on the 1st Floor of the Library or chat with a Librarian via the Live Chat link on the homepage.
