Disney Rejection Letter

A Disney rejection letter from 1938 in which it states that "women do not do any of the creative work in connection with preparing cartoons for the screen". Instead that work is performed by young men. The letter originates from somebody's grandmother who applied for a job at the studio. She eventually became an animator during WWII for the war effort.

Boing Boing has more information.



As someone who is only 24 and has never truly experienced sex discrimination, its absolutely jaw dropping that there was a time when it was so blatant! Discrimination still exists, but I can't believe the audacity of that letter...
