Paving the Way Makers: Women Who Make America Tue 26th, 8 p.m.

The first time Kathrine Switzer ran the Boston Marathon, a race director tried to forcibly remove her from the competition. It was 1967 and women were excluded from the marathon—even the reporters following the race alongside the runners heckled and harassed her. Undeterred, she finished the race— becoming the first woman in history to officially enter and run the legendary marathon. “I often say that I started the Boston Marathon as a girl and finished as a grown woman,” Switzer says in Makers: Women Who Make America, premiering this month on THIRTEEN. Narrated by Meryl Streep, the film tells the story of how women have transformed America over the last half century. Interviews include Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Ellen DeGeneres, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, and many others. THIRTEEN spoke with executive producers Dyllan McGee and Betsy West about the groundbreaking multimedia project from Kunhardt McGee Productions, Storyville Films and WETA Washington, D.C., in association with Ark Media. What inspired you to do a documentary about women’s advancement over the past 50 years? DYLLAN McGEE: I am 42 years old and I don't think women—or men—of my generation really understand how much has changed for women over just 50 years. At the same time, there is still more work to be done. So I went to Gloria Steinem to ask her to do a story on her life, but she, in her egoless way, refused. She said her story was a part of a collective of stories: she wanted the bigger picture. I was amazed to find out no one had told this story. So my partners, Betsy West, Peter Kunhardt, and I decided to produce a documentary on the modern Ameri-

can Women's Movement and develop the idea for an online archive—a living, breathing library of stories which became MAKERS.com and was made possible by an extraordinary collaboration between PBS and AOL. BETSY WEST: When Dyllan approached me about this project six years ago, I was astonished that the story of the Women's Movement had not been told on film despite the tremendous impact it had on American life and the generations of women who followed, including me. As an aspiring TV journalist in the 1970s, I was hired for jobs that just a few years before would have been men-only had it not been for lawsuits and protests that paved the way. A few years later, as a

Dyllan McGee and Betsy West, executive producers of Makers


thirteen.org 1 producer for ABC News, I witnessed the front lines of opposition to the movement when I covered the defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment. So I jumped at the chance to document this extraordinary tale and track down the stories of the gutsy, groundbreaking women who have remade American society in my lifetime. Do you have a favorite moment from the film? DM: First, I must say that it has been such a thrill to collaborate with our very talented senior producer Barak Goodman. But I suppose the moment that resonates most for me as a mom who works outside the home is the final segment where contemporaries of mine like Melissa Harris Perry and Abigail Pogrebin talk about work/ life balance. We were the “you can have it all” generation and no one prepared us for the challenges of trying to build a career and raise children at the same time. I also love the surprising stories we uncovered, such as Oprah Winfrey talking about fighting for equal pay. BW: Even though I have watched it over a hundred times, I still get a kick out of seeing Boston Marathon race official Jock Semple attack runner Kathrine Switzer, only to have her evade his grasp as her

boyfriend sends him flying. So often gender discrimination is not visible; this is probably the most dramatic, graphic illustration of the fierce opposition to women stepping outside the boundaries society had set for them. And it is such a funny, inspiring moment. How would your career be different if you didn’t have a relationship with public television? DM: Kunhardt McGee Productions is dedicated to telling stories about the people and ideas that have shaped our world, and we love PBS for allowing us to do that with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s popular series and now with Makers. We never could have made Makers without the support of public television, AOL, and Simple® skincare. BW: After a long career in commercial television news, I am grateful to PBS for providing a platform to produce stories that are entertaining, illuminating and important.
