I Was Hired Because I Was A Woman

I’m not making assumptions. I was simply told that by the executive at Disney Animation with the cold blue eyes who sat behind his desk. It was 1987. They were getting some flack because they didn’t have enough women in creative positions—especially their story department—their current count: 0.

Great story and insight from Brenda Chapman, director of The Prince of Egypt and Brave.
