6. I highly recommend the book "Queens of Animation" by Nathalia Holt

Itís about the women who played a significant creative role in the artistry of the classic Disney films.

Most women were, like Ms. Thompson, relegated to the tedious menial jobs in the ink and paint department, tracing the pencil drawings made by the male animators onto cels and adding the paint to colour in the drawings as directed by the animator. There were a select few who rose to prominence to design characters or backgrounds, or even story development.

Ms. Thompson is mentioned briefly in the book.
