MAKERS: Women who Make America

March is Women’s History Month.  Tune in the final week of February to watch “MAKERS:  Women who Make America.”  This compelling documentary tells the story of women’s advancement in the past 50 years through firsthand accounts of leaders, opponents, and trailblazers.  The women’s revolution has unfolded in highly public and private areas, from the branches of the US government to the bedroom.  This three-hour film will air on PBS the week of Feb. 26 (on UNC-TV, it will air Wednesday, Feb. 28) from 8 to 11 PM.  Stories include those of Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, Oprah Winfrey, Gloria Steinem, and many more.
