Makers: Women Who Make America Previous Broadcasts

Episode #101(

KQED 9: Tue, Aug 6, 2013 -- 9:00 PM

This comprehensive and innovative series tells the compelling story of women's advancement in America over the past 50 years. It is a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, on grand stages like the US Supreme Court and Congress, and humbler ones like the boardroom and the bedroom. The 3-hour series features the stories of those who led the fight, those who opposed it and those - both famous and unknown - caught up in its wake. Meryl Streep narrates the program, which features commentary and the stories of Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice, Oprah Winfrey and Katie Couric, and Gloria Steinem and Phyllis Schlafly, among others.
