Upon walking into the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center for the red carpet premiere of the documentary “MAKERS: Women Who Make America”, I immediately felt this a ridiculous fierce energy just knowing I was surrounded by some of the most groundbreaking women in America. Proudly presented by PBS, AOL and Simple Facial Skincare, in walked the likes of Gloria Steinem, Allison Williams, Katie Couric, Amy Goodman, Marlo Thomas (alongside husband, Phil Donanhue) and Tavi Gevinson (to name a few). As part of a sneak preview of the documentary, they let guests view the 1st hour and part of the third. The film is a unique initiative that documents the extraordinary impact women from all walks of life have made in America over the past 50 years. The ladies featured filled me with tears of inspiration and awe.
Mark your calendars (literally go get a pen!), MAKERS: Women Who Make America debuts on airs February 26, at 8PM on PBS. Watch the preview here.
