Sherry Lansing, 1st Woman to lead a major Hollywood studio

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Sherry Lansing was the first woman to head a major motion picture studio, 20th Century Fox. Over 12 years as Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures, Lansing was responsible for the production, marketing, and distribution of such blockbusters as Titanic, Forrest Gump, and Braveheart. As an independent producer, she brought Fatal Attraction, The Accused, Black Rain, and Indecent Proposal.

She was honored at the 2007 Academy Awards with an Oscar in recognition of her tireless work as a philanthropist and advocate for cancer research.

In early 2017 the biography was released Leading Lady, Sherry Lansing and the Making of Hollywood Groundbreaker by Stephen Galloway.

This will be a special event with trailblazing woman who broke Hollywood's glass ceiling to become the first woman head of major studio, and who continues to make her mark on society.
