Rochester's own Ursula Burns makes an appearance.

MAKERS originated from a very clear premise: over the last half century, the work of millions of women has altered virtually every aspect of American culture. 

AOL, a premier digital media company, and PBS, the nation’s largest non-commercial media organization, together are launching “MAKERS: Women Who Make America,” an unprecedented digital video and broadcast initiative. The multi-platform initiative aims to become not only the largest but also the most dynamic collection of women’s stories ever assembled.

Visit to look for stories from MAKERS including Judy Blume, Carol Burnett, Katie Couric, Ellen DeGeneres, Geraldine Ferraro, Billie Jean King, Maya Lin, Condoleezza Rice, Faith Ringgold,Gloria Steinem, and more.
