For Women’s History Month, Ava DuVernay is highlighting female filmmakers on Twitter

  • On Wednesday, Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay is hosting a 12-hour conversation — or “Rebel-a-Thon” — on Twitter, with nearly 30 female filmmakers.
  • The discussion will use the hashtag #ArrayToday to celebrate the start of Women’s History Month. Array is DuVernay’s independent film collective.
  • “We offer this year’s Rebel-a-Thon as an opportunity to highlight the important contributions made by women filmmakers,” Tilane Jones, Array’s executive director, said in a statement Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times. “On March 1, we will stand together for inclusiveness in the industry.” Read more (3/1/17 12:39 PM)

Adrienne and Lafayette are my otp, 

They were in an arranged marriage, had six children and named their son Georges Washington, after the war Lafayette was tried with treason and arrested, Adrienne was arrested as well, survived the reign of terror and her last words to Lafayette were, “I am all yours.” 

Thats the cliff notes version, but please feel free to read up on her, I plan on drawing other Hamilton ladies, like Martha Washington, Sally Hemmings, Dolly Madison, women are just so bad-ass and amazing 

Today’s Google Doodle: Mary Pickford’s 125th Birthday

“Lights, camera, action! Today’s doodle honors the “Queen of the Movies,” Mary Pickford. An actress, a film director, and a producer, Mary Pickford proved that actors weren’t relegated to careers in front of the camera. She co-founded the film studio United Artists and was one of the original 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Before she became one of the most powerful women who has ever worked in Hollywood, she was “the girl with the curls,” and one of the most beloved stars of the silent film era. She appeared in as many as 50 films per year, and eventually negotiated wages that were equal to half of each of her films’ profits. She went on to demand full creative and financial control of her films, a feat still unheard of to this day.  She used her stardom to bring awareness to causes close to her heart. She sold Liberty Bonds during World War I, created the Motion Picture Relief Fund, and revolutionized the film industry by giving independent film producers a way to distribute their films outside the studio system. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress, for her role in Coquette (1929), and an honorary Academy Award for lifetime achievement in 1976.

Today, we pay tribute to Mary Pickford’s enterprising leadership on what would be her 125th birthday.”
