Makers Review

Guest Author - Andria Bobo

Hello, everyone! Iíve been looking forward to reviewing this documentary for a while. I watched it about a year or so ago and I fell in love with it. It is one that I highly recommend to all of you, so I hope that you watch it and enjoy as much as I did!

Makers: Women Who Make America is a documentary on the womenís movement in America. It features many stories, interviews, and clips that all relate to the history of women in America from about the 1950s until now. The documentary is a PBS mini-series that is three episodes long and each episode lasts about one hour long.

I really enjoyed this documentary. It goes very in-depth into the history of the womenís movement of America and explores how it began, how it affected America then, and how it is affecting America even now. It documents the triumphs and failures of the movements. I loved all the interviews conducted by the makers of the documentary. It features women who were really there during all of these historic moments and they get to tell the story as they perceived it.

The documentary does seem to have a feminist leaning to it. However, I do appreciate that it does show some of the failings of the feminist movement particularly during the 60s, because many people tend to gloss over its failings. It was open and honest and featured all sides of the story.

There is some material in this documentary that may be offensive to you. It talks about birth control and abortion (and features a particularly graphic picture of a woman who died from a failed abortion). I would not recommend this documentary to anyone who may be offended by or would be in any way sensitive to this kind of material.

I would, however, recommend Makers: Women Who Make America to anyone who is interested in womenís rights, American history, or both. The documentary is fascinating and does a fantastic job covering the subject matter.


Note: I watched this documentary on Netflix, a service that I pay for with my own money.
