Great education tool

By Grandma

Comments about PBS Makers: Women Who Make America DVD:

I loved this DVD and have used it as a tool for sharing my her-story with my 17 year old granddaughter. The action is fast enough and the stories interesting enough to hold her attention. It's so much easier to share visually with young people, rather than talking to them! It also led to her asking for my personal experiences. Perfect!

The struggle

By Elizabeth

Comments about PBS Makers: Women Who Make America DVD:

I started in the automotive parts business in 1973, back when women did not do that. The women who are in my age bracket struggled and struggled for fairness and equality that they young women of today take for granted. It is sad how so many for get what it was like and do not fully comprehend and appreciate all of us who faught the fight for all to enjoy.

For All

By Fleming617

from Boston, MA

Comments about PBS Makers: Women Who Make America DVD:

Equality and "Makers" is not about "left v. right," as some reviewers here would have you believe. It's about the women who fought so hard so that we women today - no matter our beliefs - have opportunities. Women = human.

I am thankful for all women, even those whose views differ from my own. Makers has actually revived me and reminded me how far we've come yet how far we still have to go.

One sided

By Mary T.

Comments about PBS Makers: Women Who Make America DVD:

Definitely disappointed. There are women from both sides who make a difference. You wouldn't know it from watching this show. Only really shows contributions from women on the left. Very disappointing.

What an incredible film!

Comments about PBS Makers: Women Who Make America DVD:

I was completely blown away by this documentary when I saw it on t.v. earlier this year. I immediately bought the DVD because I had seen it out of sequence, and I just watched it again. For those of us who were active in the women's movement in the 1960s and '70s, this film brings so much of it back to life and awakens so many memories. There are, of course, things that are missing, and in most respects this is pretty mainstream. But I'm amazed at how much is included and how representative it is, while at the same time being very entertaining. Bravo to the Makers of the film!
