        Hedy Lamarr | Feminism in Hollywood

        Learn how Hedy Lamarr struggled to transcend the “bombshell” label placed on her by Hollywood in this media gallery from the American Masters film Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story. During a time when women in Hollywood have become increasingly more vocal in identifying issues of gender inequality in the entertainment industry, Lamarr’s story is particularly relevant. Lamarr was an early feminist – before the term was commonly used – who broke barriers as a movie producer and in daring to establish herself as an inventor. Engage students with discussion questions and check out the teaching tips for ideas on how to connect the content to women in Hollywood today.
