March 23 & April 11, 2017: MAKERS: Women Who Make America
MAKERS: Women Who Make America
In honor of Women's History Month, the March Go Global featured the first part of a documentary that tells the remarkable story of the most sweeping social revolution in American history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy. The April Go Global featured the second part of the documentary. MAKERS brings this story to life with archival treasures and poignant interviews with those who led the fight, those who opposed it, and those first generations to benefit from its success. MAKERS is a film by Kunhardt McGee Productions, Storyville Films, and WETA Washington D.C. in association with Ark Media.
