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.”
