In the last half - century, women have fought their way into nearly every sphere of American life, from the battlefield to the comedy club, the soundstage to the Senate. Expanding on the critically acclaimed PBS documentary MAKERS: Women Who Make America, which told the story of the modern American women's movement, each documentary in this six-part series examines the impact of the women's movement on six fields once largely closed to women. Through intimate interviews with trailblazing women known and unknown, viewers are given a rare limpse--sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always candid--of what it was like to be pioneers in their fields. Directed by some of the country's leading independent filmmakers, MAKERS brings to life new and unforgettable stories that every woman, man, girl and boy should know.
Interviewees include: Ursula Burns, Diahann Carroll, Paula Coughlin, Glenn Close, Geena Davis, Ellen DeGeneres, Chelsea Handler, Gwen Ifill, Mae Jemison, Jane Lynch, Barbara Mikulski, Indra Nooyi, Valerie Plame, Shonda Rhimes, Joan Rivers, Pat Schroeder, Sarah Silverman, Olympia Snowe, Alfre Woodard, and many more.
