Here's to Women Who Run

On Sunday, we celebrated the women in the New York City Marathon, striding down the street to cheers of "Mary!" and "Jemma!" Today, we cheer for women who run in a different kind of race, those who establish a platform and then stand on it, who fight for the rights they believe in on a national stage. Whether they're running through the five boroughs or campaigning across the country, these women are examples of strength and determination.

As we vote in a midterm election that could put a record-breaking number of women in Congress, our documentary MAKERS: Women in Politics looks back at the women who paved the way to this moment. Join us for the PBS premiere tonight at 9/8c, or tune into our live stream with Cokie Roberts on Wednesday at 8 PM ET, then join the conversation with #MAKERSfilms
