Women Who Make America
This candid documentary features the commentary of influential figures such as Hillary Clinton, Sandra Day O’Connor, Barbara Walters, Gloria Steinem, and Ellen DeGeneres. In tracking this still-unfinished revolution from its first sparks in the 1960s all the way through to today’s ongoing debates, the program offers a thorough appreciation of women’s struggle for equality. Issues raised over the course of this balanced—yet sometimes shocking—account of modern history include abortion, contraception, domestic violence, rape, and the objectification of women in the media.
