Nathalia Holt is a writer and New York Times bestselling author of "The Queens of Animation."
With Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, Disney has created some of cinema’s most recognizable female characters. Which is ironic, considering the studio was once quite a boys club. Nathalia Holt joins host Krys Boyd to talk about Disney’s Golden Age and the women who fought gender discrimination behind the scenes. Her new book is called “The Queens of Animation: The Untold Story of the Women Who Transformed the World of Disney and Made Cinematic History.”
Streamed live on 15 February 2017. For this stimulating episode of “Read Science!” we welcomed Nathalia Holt, author of Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled Us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars. We talked about the days when “calculators” were people who calculated, the early days of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the “Suicide Squad”, the race to launch the first satellite for the US, and the extraordinary story of how the team of calculators at JPL came to be mostly women.
