As we wind down from celebrating the Academy Awards and the wonderful works of film from the past year, we're excited to commemorate something really remarkable: the achievements of women in changing our nation.
Airing on PBS tomorrow, MAKERS: Women Who Make America 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.
From Judy Blume and Sandra Day O'Connor to Martha Stewart and Marissa Mayer, the special covers 50 years of women challenging and changing the status quo, and making our nation a better place.
PBS also has a YouTube channel celebrating local makers across the country, though none from New England were available at press time.
We'll be tuning in to WGBH at 8 p.m.
