Have you heard about the " Serial Queens " ? : https://www.tor.com/2013/12/13/the-first-female-action-heroes/

Video about them : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jJFvdKjX2w

Apparently action heroines were pretty common in the beginning of Hollywood but they started becoming more rare after World War 1 due to Hollywood not wanting to encourage women into having action oriented lifestyles due to only males being conscripted into war and women having to stay at home taking care of the children so the blokes can fight it out...

After World War 1 women in Hollywood had their participations and protagonisms confined to Romance movies and movies focusing on day to day life in general for quite a long time apparently...

This was fascinating, they were a global success for some of them. And now they're forgotten, with some movies being lost. It's tragic, it's absolutely male erasure of women. And of course their careers took a dive around 1920s, it seems women's efforts only get a short life span before men fight back and erase us. The pendulum always swinging back and forth, the problem is they erase everything.
