The NABFEME SHERO comes in every imaginable professional field… and they manifest their Sheroism in infinite ways. The strength and fortitude of our Shero foremothers in the entertainment industry paved the way for today’s executive divas and goddesses. The accomplishments of these women are quite stunning in light of the fact that there was, for whatever reason, an un-talked about system that always put men on top. Battling exclusion and seclusion, these incredible women risked it all to create the opportunities for the women that would follow them.
