This remarkable feat is a testament to the abilities and talents of women in the film industry.
  2. Miles Franklin, the author of the novel "My Brilliant Career," reportedly wrote the book when she was only sixteen years old, but it was not published until she was about twenty-one years old in 1901. This novel was groundbreaking for its time and is still widely read today, over a century later.
