Summary

Paulette, Phyllis and Isobel were the eldest of seven children of John Michael McDonagh, the surgeon to J.C. Williamson's theatrical companies, and his wife Annie.

These three remarkable sisters made history by becoming the first Australian women to own and run a film production company.

Read more about the McDonagh Sisters in our sister publication The Encyclopedia of Women and Leadership in Twentieth-Century Australia.
