"Makers" is a captivating production - an outstanding collection of historical footage, stories, and commentary from the late 1950's to the present, featuring the contributions of both well known and relatively unknown women. Women who, by virtue of their strength and committment to women's rights, have made major contributions to our lives. "Makers" timeline parallels my lifetime. I've often wondered if younger women have much of a sense of the struggles and persistence that has led to the myriad of opportunities for girls and women now often taken for granted. "Makers" provides a lively, engaging opportunity for those who weren't there throughout the past fifty years to get a real sense of what transpired over that time and how we got to where we now are. And, for those of us who lived the times, what a great opportunity to revisit a real revolution.
