"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.

I just saw this on PBS this evening and couldn't tear myself away from it. I only had fringe knowledge of this history, as I was too young to be aware of it when it was beginning, and it wasn't being discussed as I became a teen in a very conservative Southern small town - maybe too controversial or too recent to be considered "history" for study. It's an invaluable history lesson and inspiration. All women today should consider themselves indebted to those who stood up for our rights, broke barriers, and championed change. While we still have strides to make in the US, our lives are luxurious compared to women of many cultures, so it's fitting that the movement's emphasis has shifted to bettering their lives.
I'm buying this as soon as it comes out & maybe a copy for our library, too. Make sure you see this and get others to watch it too!

Just watched this on PBS....blown away by the thought and care that went into making it and sharing it with a world that seems to have forgotten exactly how hard many people worked so that I would EXPECT that I have the RIGHT to write this review and have it be read. THANK YOU for your work.

The production is well worth the time. Please share it with everyone you can think of.

I've been looking for an overview of 2nd wave feminism, including what it was like in the 1950s and 60's. I found the 1970s history of successes and clashes really useful for teaching history.

Loved it. So much information that sadly doesn't get covered in conventional education. It is very well done and covers so much!

Every woman and person especially those under 40 should watch this excellent video to see what has been accomplished in such a short time span. It is amazing how far woman have come and how wrong things were just in the 70s. Very, very good.

This is just an amazing video about the contributions that women have made to America, and yet women don't get the same credit for their contributions to society that men get.

I was inspired by the woman that changed the way Americans see the role of women in [fill in the blank]. My favorite story was that of the first woman who ran the Boston Marathon.

All people should see this documentary. Many younger people are unfamiliar with the fight that women had to endure to get basic rights. This DVD is a real eye-opener!
