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. 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 glimpse–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.
Women in Business (2014, TV-PG)
Hear about the exceptional women — past and present — who have taken the world of business by storm. Told by female business leaders themselves, this is a candid exploration of what it takes to make it and a celebration of the extraordinary individuals who, over the course of 50 years, have proven — on Wall Street, in corporate America or business empires of their own — that a woman’s place is wherever she believes it to be.
Women in War (2014, TV-14)
Look at American women’s increasing participation in war–from Vietnam to the present–as nurses, soldiers, journalists, diplomats, and spies.
