Abstract

The Queens of Animation by Nathalia Holt reveals the stories and struggles of women who have gone chiefly uncredited for their contributions to Disney Animation. By adopting a loosely chronological approach, Holt weaves the personal stories and creative influence of Bianca Majolie, Grace Huntington, Retta Scott, Mary Blair, Sylvia Holland and others throughout Disney animation’s timeline from the mid-1930s to the present time.
