This book is a unique examination of women in the arts, created as a reference point for students, researchers, and theater practitioners. Coverage focuses on female directors who live or work in 24 countries as diverse as the Czech Republic, Kenya, Taiwan, and the U.S. Each entry follows a specific structure: information about the historical context of women’s rights in the particular country, a discussion of early women directors, notes on the working climate for women directors in the twenty-first century, and then profiles of contemporary directors. There are black-and-white photographs of directors scattered throughout the text. A list of sources follows each entry, and there is an index (not seen). Recommended for academic libraries supporting theater-arts programs
