Tonight! MAKERS Finale: Women in Politics

by Audrey Cerchiara

The latest and last installment of the MAKERS documentary series, “Women in Politics,” airs tonight at 9/8c on PBS. Narrated by Alfre Woodard, the continuing struggle for female representation in politics is personified in the stories of  Shirley Chisholm, Olympia Snowe, and Hillary Clinton, among others.  

Just in time to make us feel really satisfied about voting today, right? (Go vote.)


MAKERS rewrites women into history — even Sarah Palin deserves her spot (though maybe she is in the wrong segment?)

You can also catch up on all the funny, fighting, dramatic, bossy, out-of-this-world women in all five previously aired MAKERS specials that are streaming online for FREE.
