Women’s History Month Film Series

March 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us at the Carnegie Branch!

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.
