Forgotten Women of Genre: Sally Menke

By Riley Silverman

March is Women's History Month. And while here on SYFY FANGRRLS we celebrate women's achievements throughout the year, we're going above and beyond for the upcoming month with a limited podcast series called Forgotten Women of Genre.

When Quentin Tarantino was seeking an editor for his debut film Reservoir Dogs, he couldn't have known that his interview with Sally Menke would lead to a career defining partnership for both of them. The perfect editor for his particular brand of nonlinear storytelling, Menke would go on to serve as the editor on every Tarantino film until her tragic death in 2010. Working away in her editing bay, far from the sets of his films, with only the occasional "Hello Sally" from the cast on the dailies to keep her company, Menke's ability to weave footage into emotional and vibrant storytelling was an inspiration to young editors everywhere. On the sixth episode of Forgotten Women of Genre, we celebrate Sally Menke, Quentin Tarantino's one true collaborator.

Science fiction, fantasy, and all associated genres have finally evolved from a niche interest into a mainstream staple. But the women who have been instrumental in creating and shaping the nerdverse have largely gone unrecognized. Until today. Forgotten Women of Genre tells the stories of the women who helped some of the most famous fantasy worlds become a reality.

New episodes of this series will be released each day in the month of March, in addition to regularly scheduled episodes of STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS.
