“Rene­gade Women in Film & TV” is a charmingly illustrated and timely tribute to the women who broke glass ceilings in film and television, debuting during a historic time of change in the entertainment industry.

On the heels of the groundbreaking #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, author Elizabeth Weitzman and Jewish Women’s Archive executive director Judith Rosenbaum will discuss the groundbreaking accomplishments and essential work of pioneers from the big and small screens, offering little-known facts about household names (Lucille Ball, Oprah Winfrey, Nora Ephron) and crucial introductions to overlooked pioneers (Alla Nazimova, Anna May Wong, Frances Marion). Join us to honor the women who succeeded against all odds, changing their industry in front of the camera and behind the scenes.

Harvard Book Store will be selling copies of “Renegade Women in Film & TV,” and Elizabeth will be signing books after the talk.

Join us at 6:15 p.m. for a guided tour of the Vilna! Learn about the history of the Jews of Boston and the unique architectural features of this particular building.
