A cogent overview of the struggle for women's rights in America, this program melds news file footage and photos with comments from prominent feminists such as Gloria Steinem, Ellen Goodman, and Maggie Kuhn.

Milestones are reviewed (from the refusal by the Constitution’s founding fathers to “remember the ladies” and the Seneca Falls Convention to new roles in the Industrial Revolution, social activism in the settlement house movement, labor opportunities in WWII, political activism in the 1960s, “glass ceilings” in the 1980s, and limits on reproductive freedom in the 1990s). Outstanding women are remembered (Abigail Adams, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Jane Addams, Eleanor Roosevelt).
