MAKERS
Screening in September and October 2014
MAKERS is a six-part PBS series profiling the impact women have had over the past 50 years in six industries — comedy, politics, space, war, business, and Hollywood. A landmark broadcast and digital-video initiative developed by AOL, MAKERS aims to be the largest and most dynamic collection of women’s stories ever assembled.

Evolution of a Criminal
Screening in November and December 2014
Filmmaker Darius Clark Monroe explores what led him to become a bank robber as a teenager in Texas, though interviews with family, friends, and mentors involved in his story as well as by returning to the scene of the crime.
 
A Path Appears
Screening in January 2015
From the team that brought you the groundbreaking Half the Sky, A Path Appears goes to Colombia, Haiti, Kenya, and the USA to uncover the harshest forms of gender-based oppression and human rights violations, and solutions being implemented to combat them. Coming to PBS in early 2015.
 
American Denial
Screening in February 2015
In 1944 Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal asked: How could America’s belief in liberty and equality also enable Jim Crow segregation? American Denial uses Myrdal’s inquiry to probe — through a diverse chorus of commentators — the power of unconscious biases today in what some have called post-racial America.
 
The Homestretch
Screening in March and April 2015
Three homeless teens brave Chicago winters, high school pressures, and life alone on the streets to build a brighter future. Against all odds, they recover from the trauma of abandonment to create new, surprising definitions of home.
 
Limited Partnership
Screening in May 2015
After falling in love, a Filipino American and an Australian in 1975 became one of the world’s first same-sex couples to legally marry. The pioneering couple’s fight for justice raged on for 40 years, paving the way for the eventual defeat of the Defense of Marriage Act.

“By spotlighting some of the most inspirational women in our nation’s history, MAKERS will tell the comprehensive story of how women have advanced in America during the last half century. I hope that the MAKERS project will become the seminal record of women’s achievement, and inspire a new generation of leaders,” said Paula A. Kerger, President and CEO of PBS. “PBS and our member stations are proud to support this celebration and dialogue about the role of women in our society.”
