Famous Names - TV Actresses

Women have made an indelible mark in television history. TV actresses first appeared in silent dramas during the 1920s, then mother-focused sitcoms became popular in the 1950s. In the 1970s, a huge shift happened when unmarried working women characters emerged. This trend continues today as TV actresses go for roles that breakaway from gender and cultural norms.
