The Mabels - named for the fabulous Mabel Normand, of course! - get access to the super-exclusive Fully Fifty-fifty Facebook group!

I deliver each series of lectures in there, so you get to tune in live, see all the visuals and ask questions or make comments - all weeks before the series is released to the public as an audio podcast.

I also share sources and reading lists, plus we have monthly watch parties, working our way through the films that feature in the lectures.

I'm an author, former screenwriter and early Hollywood geek! I've been fascinated by secret feminist origins of Hollywood as long as I can remember, and I am passionate about spreading the word. Too many people today take it for granted that Hollywood is and always has been a boys club, but the first studio head, the first star to sign a million dollar contract, the first screenwriter to win a second Oscar - all women. This project is dedicated to uncovering and celebrating them.
