The Awesome Fact You Probably Didn't Know About Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is known as an iconic Hollywood actress and sex symbol, but she was also a trailblazer for women. Find out why after the jump!

After only being offered "dumb blonde" roles, Monroe took things in her own hands. After a film hiatus, she went into business with photographer Milton Greene and established Marilyn Monroe Productions in 1955, becoming only the third woman ever to start a production company in the United States. 

But Monroe didn't just fight for her own career, she fought for other amazing women in the industry as well. Case in point?
