MAKERS
Women in Politics

 

Six new documentaries in the MAKERS project feature groundbreaking American women in different spheres of influence: war, comedy, space, business, Hollywood and politics. Each program will profile prominent women and relate their struggles, triumphs and contributions as they reshaped and transformed the landscape of their chosen vocations.

 

Women in Politics
View profiles of women in public office who were “firsts” in their fields. From the first woman elected to Congress in 1916 to a young woman running for Detroit City Council in 2013, the documentary explores the challenges confronting American women in politics. Trailblazing leaders like Hillary Clinton, Senator Barbara Mikulski, Olympia Snowe, the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the House of Representatives, and Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman to serve in Congress, provide a backdrop for younger women like Rashida Tlaib, the first Muslim American woman elected to the Michigan House, and Raquel Castaneda-Lopez, who chronicles her run for Detroit City Council. Today’s leaders in Washington include: Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the first female senator from Massachusetts; Susan Collins (R-ME), who led the Senate in shaping a deal to end the government shutdown; and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), currently the youngest woman serving in Congress, are also represented.
