Makers: Women Who Make America is a 2013 documentary film about the struggle for women's equality in the United States during the last five decades of the 20th century.
The film was narrated by Meryl Streep and distributed by the Public Broadcasting Service as a three-part, three-hour television documentary in February 2013.
Steinem herself had an abortion straight out of college, and told no one.
She realized that feminism and women's experiences would never be covered in magazines she wrote for, so she started ‘Ms.’.
Gloria Steinem remembers, "You were supposed to be pretty and happy all the time." She didn’t remember any serious or smart women during those years.
During World War II, women worked in factories because so many of the men were gone.
Lesser known women, such as Maria Pepe, who was instrumental in establishing the right of girls to play Little League Baseball, are also featured.
It’s loud, the Yankees are playing the Red Sox and the doors are pulled back to allow the unseasonably cool summer air drift in from 32nd Street.The second part takes place in the 1970s ("Changing the World"), and covers the sexual revolution and abortion debate.The third and last part of the film ("Charting a New Course") ends in the 1980s and 1990s, and discusses issues facing women in the workforce, violence against women, the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination and sexual harassment.They were concerned about stigma, negative reactions from colleagues or online retribution.Since the beginning of the year, I started noticing a new dating profile.
