From the Roosevelt Island Women's Movie Group:
Look back on the past 50 years of the women's movement in America with our next film
MAKERS: Women Who Make America, Thursday, April 30. 2015 at 7:00 pm in the Party Room at 425 Main Street.

MAKERS tells the remarkable story of the most sweeping social revolution in American history, as women have asserted their rights to a full and fair share of political power, economic opportunity, and personal autonomy in the last 50 years. It's a revolution that has unfolded in public and private, in courts and Congress, in the boardroom and the bedroom, changing not only what the world expects from women, but what women expect from themselves.

This is the third in a three-part PBS series. It is NOT the show currently broadcast on PBS. You can enjoy the movie even if you did not see the previous segments.

We had a lively discussion in January and November recalling feminist activities. Join us and bring a friend.
