In the last half-century, women have fought their wayinto nearly every sphere of American life, from the battlefield to the comedy club, the soundstage to the Senate. Expanding on the critically acclaimed PBSdocumentary MAKERS: Women Who Make America, which told the story of the modernAmerican 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, viewersare given a rare glimpse—sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always candi —ofwhat it was like to be pioneers in their fields.
