The Female Lead

A non-profit dedicated to making women's stories more visible and offering alternative role models to those ever-present in popular culture. The Female Lead book profiles accomplished women from around the world, including women in the arts, sciences, sports, business, and activism. The book is available for free for schools across the U.S. along with teaching materials. Recently Nell Merlino, one of the women profiled, wrote a guest blog for NGCP titled Casting the Female Lead.
