There's a new PBS documentary you've got to watch called Makers. I'm trying to raise my girls to be strong women. Does that mean I am a feminist? I'm not sure. But one thing I do know, I want my girls to know how far the women's movement has come. Executive Producer & Director, Dylan McGee got the chance to dive deep into this topic with her new series on PBS called Makers.
My husband and I went to the NYC premiere in early February. We were joined by fabulous women like Katie Couric, Marlo Thomas, Gloria Steinem, Diem Brown, Tavi Gevinson, special guest (and new face of MAKERS funding partner Simple Skincare) Allison Williams. It was awesome. It kicked off with a clip that mad tears well up in my eyes. Seeing the story of Billie Jean King playing Bobby Riggs blew me away. She had to fight for every opportunity she had. I want my girls to know these stories, so we'll be watching Makers together.
The film is a 3-hour documentary (funded in part by the fabulous team at SIMPLE skincare) that tells the collective story of change. In addition there is an online site with more interviews and more stories.
