"Sometimes a book comes into your life that you didn't know you needed until you start reading. And when you do things start to fall into place. That's Dynamic Dames for me. Film historian and author Sloan De Forest delivers with this captivating feminist manifesto.... The writing is engaging and the narrative voice is whip smart and clever."

"This gift-worthy volume selects famous leading ladies from the 1920s "pre-code" films, where rebellious behaviors were on display from Clara Bow and Josephine Baker, until the present day... The result is a very satisfying and notably diverse group of talented professionals that have created some of the most memorable moments in film."
