Program in Women’s Studies: “Makers: Women Who Made America – Charting a New Course”

Wednesday, March 26 at 7:00pm

Lane Center Atkinson Room 101 Braddock Road, Frostburg, MD, Frostburg

FSU’s Program in Women’s Studies to Present Film Screening and Discussion

Frostburg State University’s Program in Women’s Studies will host a screening of the film “Makers: Women Who Made America – Charting a New Course” for Women’s History Month, on Wednesday, March 26, at 7 p.m. in the Atkinson Room (232) in the Lane University Center. This event is free and open to the public.

“Makers: Women Who Made America” is a three-part documentary charting the course of feminism in the United States in the last half of the 20th century. “Charting a New Course” is the third part of this documentary and focuses on the period from 1980 to today, when the women’s movement achieved long-sought goals and began examining the obstacles still in place, including equal pay, the balance of work and family, conservatives seeking to roll back abortion and contraception laws and younger women fleeing the idea of feminism. Narrated by Hollywood star Meryl Streep, the film features interviews from women who led the movement, including Hillary Rodham Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Katie Couric.

The film will be introduced by Dr. Eleanor McConnell of the FSU Department of History and a discussion will follow the film.
