Fannie Hurst was a very popular Jewish-American writer in the 1910s and 1920s who mixed with a lot of well-known writers, while also connecting with the silent film scene.  Ravitz parallels Hurst’s growing acclaim with the evolution of silent films, from which she borrowed ideas and techniques that furthered her career.          The author argues that she should be considered one of the forerunners of feminism
