Background
Linda Farin was a successful lawyer in Austin, Texas. After seeing Donna Deitch's film Desert Hearts, she became inspired and challenged to produce a realistic and positive lesbian erotic film and began forming a cohort of lesbian writers in order to develop a script. Through her participation with Liatris Media, which produced the Third Wave Women's International Film and Video Festival from 1986-1989, Linda Farin met Greta Schiller and Andrea Weiss. Greta Schiller became involved in the project in the early stages anonymously and later added her name to the project as Director. Farin formed both Foosh Productions and Anonymous Was a Woman Ltd. in order to help fund the project. Anonymous Was A Woman Ltd. was later dissolved in 1996.
