PBS does history of women's lib





 

They're not homemakers, they're "Makers."
 
While they may raise children, cook, clean and honor their spouses, the women celebrated in the PBS-AOL collaboration "Makers" are the daring ones who ventured out of the house to lead the women's liberation movement, who broke barriers and became emblems in the fight for equality.
 
"Makers: Women Who Make America" is a broadcast and digital effort, already online and premiering as a three-hour documentary narrated by Meryl Streep on PBS on Feb. 26.
 
Bra burning? Yes, that's part of the story, along with Supreme Court appointments, the first female astronaut, anchorwomen, congresswomen, corporate executives, coal miners, Boston marathoners and more.
