SW.com Celebrates The Women Of SW

Posted By Mike on June 28, 2009



Starwars.com invites you to stop on by and pay homage to the many talented women who've contributed to the Star Wars saga in a variety of ways. Get to know Those who've worked on the PT, OT, and TCW. The celebration of Star Wars women continues all week so keep checking back!


UPDATE: The spotlight on the women of Star Wars continues at the main site as the focus shifts to "Artists, Authors and Fans." Click here!


UPDATE #2: How about some ISO, Star Wars lovin' ladies? From Bonnie Burton at the main site:

"Showing off your Star Wars pride while dressed as a stormtrooper sounds like fun, but for some female fans, they'd rather trade in the helmet for a '40s up do. The ladies of the Imperial Service Organization do more than dress up like the WWII gals of yesteryear, they support the clone troopers and stormtroopers in the 501st Legion, as well as the real-life soldiers who fight overseas.

501st Commanding Officer Jennifer LaFortune (SL/ID-7047) chats with StarWars.com about the origins of the ISO, what charity work the ladies do, and why it's fun to bond with other gals in Star Wars uniform -- all for a good cause."

UPDATE #3: Pete Vilmur dives into Fangirl collecting in the '70s as Starwars.com's celebration of the women of Star Wars continues. Check out the intro below and click here for the full feature.


"Let's face it -- when Star Wars was released over 30 years ago, it was pretty much a boy's world, at least merchandise-wise. Frilly things just weren't in the cards for fangirls of the '70s and '80s, even though one of the central characters in the original trilogy was a two-fisted-take-charge kind of heroine with the reddest smear-proof lipstick in the galaxy. No, fans hoping for girl-specific merchandise would have to wait for the prequel trilogy's Amidala and The Clone Wars Ahsoka to bring on the handbags, pink peejays, jewelry, dolls, fuzzy plushes, and other female-specific merchandise.

Or would they?

Actually, three decades have faded the memories of some who may have forgotten about the Princess Leia dolls with "Star Puffs" hair, the scores of girl's shoes and sandals, the pink pajamas, barrettes, beauty bags, skirts, costumes, posters and yes, even toy guns and sporting goods aimed at young female fans.

We've compiled a list of some of these items in the following pages, and frankly were surprised at the amount of girl-specific items we uncovered from Lucasfilm's Licensing files and a few equal-opportunity collections."





UPDATE #4: Get to know the women of the Prequel Trilogy through a massive list of Databank entries for Episodes I-III at Starwars.com.


UPDATE #5: Yesterday brought us the women of the Prequels while today we get to know the women of the Original Trilogy at Starwars.com.
