About Ann & Gloria: A Life

About PBS Trailblazers

In the summer of 2020, PBS is celebrating the women’s vote centennial with a slate of multiplatform content honoring and commemorating U.S. women’s suffrage, the feminist movement and modern-day changemakers. AMERICAN EXPERIENCE “The Vote” tells the story of the transformative cultural and political movement that resulted in the largest expansion of voting rights in U.S. history. AMERICAN MASTERS “Unladylike2020” is a multimedia series featuring courageous, little-known and diverse female trailblazers from the turn of the 20th century. “And She Could Be Next” (w.t.), a POV miniseries, follows newly elected women in Congress, and a two-part FIRING LINE WITH MARGARET HOOVER special documents what motivated several conservative women to run for office. MAKERS “Not Done,” charts the last few years of the women’s movement, from the Women’s March to the U.S. Women’s Team World Cup victory, and the re-energized, intersectional fight for equality. Two fan-favorite PBS series will salute female changemakers: AMERICAN MASTERS with “Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am” and “Mae West: Dirty Blonde” and GREAT PERFORMANCES with “Gloria: A Life” about Gloria Steinem and “Ann” about Texas governor Ann Richards. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW spotlights outstanding contributions from female athletes, artist, activists and more in the all new special “Women’s Work.”  The lineup also features two new miniseries: PREHISTORIC ROAD TRIP, hosted by the Field Museum’s Emily Graslie, who embarks on an epic adventure through America’s fossil country, and BBC co-production ROYAL HISTORY’S MYTHS AND SECRETS WITH LUCY WORSLEY, who investigates notable women and their roles in historical events. In addition, PBS will encore the critically acclaimed and award-winning FRONTLINE “For Sama,” an intimate yet epic journey of one woman’s experience of the Syrian war.
