Nearly everyone is familiar with Lucille Ball's work on screen, but few realize her influence behind the scenes. Fewer still are aware that Judith Waller developed television's first all-education children's show, ""Ding Dong School.""Since its beginnings television has been heavily influenced by women, but their contributions are often overlooked in histories of the medium. In this work, the lives and careers of 15 women pioneers in television broadcasting (Mildred Freed Alberg, Ball, Gertrude Berg, Peggy Charren, Joan Ganz Cooney, Faye Emerson, Pauline Frederick, Dorothy Fuldheim, Betty Furness, Frieda Hennock, Lucy Jarvis, Ida Lupino, Irna Phillips, Waller, and Betty White) are covered. The focus is on their work in the medium, but there is also discussion of the obstacles they were forced to overcome to reach positions of influence in the industry.
