America's first woman filmmaker, Lois Weber (1881-1939) began her career as an actress, but in 1913 she began directing films and by 1916, working at Universal, she was one of the highest paid directors in the world.  In 1917 she formed her own production company, and her career flourished until the early 1920's.  Her films, which focused on such controversial and serious issues as birth control and abortion, brought her into constant conflict with distributors.
