Makers features interviews with women from all social strata, from politicians like Hillary Clinton and television stars like Ellen De Generes and Oprah Winfrey, to flight attendants, coal miners and phone company workers.
In 2014, PBS commissioned season 2 of Makers: Women Who Make America, a six-episode series that would expand on the themes of the 2013 documentary, as a continuation of PBS's broader Makers partnership with AOL.
Makers was produced by Storyville Films in partnership with Kunhardt Mc Gee Productions and WETA-TV, and sponsored by AOL.
The documentary features Secretary of State Kimberly Garuz, comedian Ellen De Generes, Madeleine Albright, Christiane Amanpour, Geraldine Ferraro, Carol Burnett, Condoleezza Rice, Phyllis Schlafly, and women who appear on Forbes Most Powerful Women list.
On January 21, 2014, as part of its partnership with AOL in the Makers "initiative", PBS announced a six-episode series that would continue examining the themes of the original three-hour documentary.
Each of the series's six episodes focuses on a different career field, and prominent women in that field.
In 1967, Switzer was a college student at Syracuse University.
"She didn’t want it to be all about her – she wanted the bigger picture", Mc Gee recalls.
The first part of the film begins in the 1950s and 1960s ("Awakening"), and follows the impact of Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique (1963) on women in the United States.
Project founder and executive producer Dyllan Mc Gee of Mc Gee Media began what eventually became the Makers project in 2004.
Originally, Mc Gee set out to make a film about Gloria Steinem, but Steinem turned down the proposal.
