MAKERS

 (33)
7.62014TV-PG
Expanding on the critically acclaimed PBS documentary MAKERS: Women Who Make America, each documentary in this six-part series examines the impact of the women's movement on six fields once largely closed to women: business, space, Hollywood, comedy, war and politics. In each field, women have pried open, and profoundly re-shaped, the central institutions of American life and culture.

This is an amazing documentary. I learned so much. I can't believe how much things have changed in so little time and how far we have to go.This makes for a fun women's night watching event. Great for discussion.

I had to purchase two episodes for a gender studies class and review it/discuss it. Honestly I was kind of dreading it, but I actually quite enjoyed it.

Excellent series on the new roles of women--as Makers

Excellent series on the new roles of women--as Makers, but not as homemakers or babymakers! Now I will have to locate season 1!

Fantastic!

The title does no justice to the content of this outstanding New look at a problem that has been swept under the rug far too long. Having been in the 1960s attempted women's liberation, I found it amazingly accurate and well worth awakening A new generations
Consciousness. We've come along way baby, But we've still got a long way to go.
