    No Going Back: Women and the War North of the Mason-Dixon line, the Industrial Revolution of the mid-19th century drew increasing numbers of women out of the home and into the factories. In the agrarian, antebellum South, no such exodus occurred. Many Southerners perceived the forces of modernization - including the early rumblings of the women's suffrage movement - as a threat to their traditional way of life. However, as Fort Sumter fell in April of 1861, so too would many firmly held cultural and societal beliefs about "a woman's place." Hardships and hunger forced ill-prepared, isolated and often un-educated Southern women into the public sphere to demand relief from the government and advocate for policy changes. NO GOING BACK: WOMEN AND THE WAR explores how the lives of women, and their roles in society, changed during and after the Civil War. Grammy┬«-winning singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter narrates. Interviews with well-known historians and academics, reenactments at Civil War-era landmarks, and dramatic readings from the letters and journals of women, both free and enslaved, illuminate this fascinating chapter in American history. duration 28:59   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Half The Sky [#101] Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide This 4-hour documentary was filmed in 10 countries and follows Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn (authors of the book by the same name), and celebrity activists America Ferrera, Diane Lane, Eva Mendes, Meg Ryan, Gabrielle Union, and Olivia Wilde on a journey to tell the stories of inspiring, courageous individuals. Across the globe oppression is being confronted, and real meaningful solutions are being fashioned through health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls. The linked problems of sex trafficking and forced prostitution, gender-based violence, and maternal mortality - which needlessly claim one woman every 90 seconds - present to us the single most vital opportunity of our time: the opportunity to make a change. All over the world women are seizing this opportunity. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVM (Secondary audio: none)

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1627] NONE OF THE ABOVE: POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS - We continue our 3-part miniseries examining the rapid rise in the number of Americans, now 20%, who describe themselves as religiously unaffiliated. The majority of these "nones," as they are often called, are Democratic and politically liberal. Kim Lawton looks at how their growing numbers could affect elections and the role of religion in politics. (Originally aired October 19,2012)
    SAME-SEX MARRIAGE - Later this month, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on an amendment that bans same-sex marriage In California, and on the Defense of Marriage Act, which denies same-sex couples who marry the same federal benefits accorded to heterosexual marriages. The Supreme Court decision will have broad implications and, as Tim O'Brien reports, one possible outcome of these cases could be the requirement that all states recognize gay marriage.

    American Masters [#2504H] Harper Lee: Hey Boo Reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" has been a national pastime for five decades - it is still selling nearly a million copies a year, its classic popularity and power are a common reference. And the courtroom image of Gregory Peck, as the passionate Atticus Finch, gave us an enduring picture for the novel's message. Behind it all was a young Southern girl named Nelle Harper Lee, who once said she wanted to be Alabama's Jane Austen.
    This program explores her life and unravels its mysteries, particularly why she never published again. Illuminated with family photos, revealing personal letters and an exclusive interview with her sister, Alice Finch Lee (100 years old), the film is steeped in the texture of the novel's Deep South and the social changes it inspired. Tom Brokaw, Rosanne Cash, Anna Quindlen, Scott Turow, Oprah Winfrey and Andrew Young reflect on how "Mockingbird" shaped their lives.

  • 6:30 am
    Storied Life of Millie Benson Athlete, adventurer and author: Mildred Wirt Benson, began her career as a ghostwriter in the late 1920s, authoring 23 of the first 30 Nancy Drew novels and was responsible for the development of the famous young character as an independent, bold and risk-taking female sleuth. Using archival photographs and interviews, the documentary traces Millie's days as a student at the University of Iowa, a children's book author, a court reporter and a weekly columnist Toledo, Ohio, newspapers. As this program illustrates, Benson embodied many of the attributes that she had used to describe her most famous literary character, Nancy Drew. In her 60s, Millie earned a private pilot's license and flew her own plane across country. She was also an amateur archaeologist and explorer. Millie Benson's story is fascinating because she was a pioneer on so many fronts. Not only was she an accomplished author and journalist, but she excelled at athletics, and later in life, as a pilot and explorer. While Millie Benson's role as the author of Nancy Drew wasn't recognized until nearly 50 years after they were published, she became an instant celebrity in 1993 when she was inducted into the University of Iowa's Hall of Fame. At the same time, her work was celebrated with a Nancy Drew conference that received national attention. duration 26:46   TVG

    American Masters [#2503H] Margaret Mitchell: American Rebel No ordinary writer and no ordinary woman --"Gone with the Wind" created two of the world's greatest lovers, Scarlett and Rhett, won a Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and has sold more than 30 million copies. Born into Atlanta's upper crust in 1900, Margaret Mitchell challenged stifling social restrictions at every turn. A charismatic force to be reckoned with, she had a great sense of humor, was one of Georgia's first newspaper women and was extremely generous with the money she made from "Gone with the Wind." She struggled with the changing role of women and the liberation of African Americans but also suffered from lifelong bouts of depression, until a tragic accident lead to her death in 1949. This film examines the amazing endurance of "Gone with the Wind" and reveals the seminal events of Mitchell's life through dramatic re-enactments based on her letters, as scenes from the movie weave together her life and her work. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG
