New documentary on the past 50 years of the feminist movement premieres tonight

We’re super excited to watch the new documentary “Makers: Women Who Make America” which chronicles the history of the feminist movement in the US over the last 50 years. Narrated by Meryl Streep, it features interviews with some of our favorite feminist leaders and awesome archival footage from the early days of the women’s movement.

Check out the trailer below and tune in to watch it on PBS tonight at 8pm EST. Folks will also be livetweeting with #MAKERSchat.
