In 1938, Miss Mary V. Ford of Searcy, Arkansas submitted artwork to the Walt Disney Inking and Painting Department for consideration. Rather than reject Miss Ford’s work based on its merit, the rejection letter explained that her work would not be considered because “women do not do any of the creative work in connection with preparing the cartoons for the screen.” Silly women, trying to get all creative and stuff. Stick to writing tracing, coloring, and signing sexist rejection letters, ladies.
