Women in Disney Animation

Forgotten Women of Genre

Outside of the vitally important Ink and Paint Department—the artistic equivalent of Ginger Rogers having to do everything Fred Astaire does, but backwards and in heels—women were barred from every other department at the Studio. According to a 1946 interview with the Associated Press, Disney believed women lacked the talent and sense of humor to be animators. Two women—Disney’s first female animator, Retta Scott, and Disney’s favorite female artist, Mary Blair—would put the truth to that lie, and the influence of these two friends can be felt in animation to this day. These are the women of Disney animation.
