These 6 Trailblazing Women Deserve the Biopic Treatment—And They’re Finally Getting It

By 

History has been shaped by great men and women, and Hollywood continues to subsist on a steady diet of these legendary figures.

Studios love turning to real-life famous people to deliver era-specific tales that connect to the present day (and win them awards).

Looking forward, it seems the industry has a vested interest in telling the stories of female trailblazers—powerful, intriguing and complicated women who challenged the system and upended conventions while often struggling with their own demons. Several exciting new projects about these inimitable ladies—including a recently announced Marilyn Monroe BBC Studios miniseries—are set to make their way to both the big and small screens in the near future.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
