Rita Lakin - The Only Woman in the Room

Saturday, October 24, 2015 - 1:00pm

Rita Lakin was a pioneer, a female script writer in the early 1960s when Hollywood Television was exclusively male. In The Only Woman in the Room, Lakin exposes us to a long-forgotten time when women were not considered worthy or welcome at the creative table. Widowed with three young children, she talked herself into a secretarial job at Universal Studios in 1962, despite being unable to type or take dictation.
