Season Two

Season 2 of MAKERS re-airs March 2018.

In the last half-century, women have fought their way into nearly every sphere of American life, from the battlefield to the comedy club, the soundstage to the Senate. Each documentary in this six-part series examines the impact of the women’s movement on six fields once largely closed to women: business, space, Hollywood, comedy, war and politics. In each field, women have pried open, and profoundly reshaped, the central institutions of American life and culture. Through intimate interviews with trailblazing women known and unknown, viewers are given a rare glimpse-- sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always candid—of what it was like to be pioneers in their fields.
