MAKERS: Women in Politics

WOMEN IN POLITICS profiles the long, slow fight for female political representation over the last century, from the first woman elected to Congress in 1916 to a young woman running for Detroit City Council in 2013. The program includes many trailblazing leaders, including the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the House of Representatives, the first African-American woman to serve in Congress, and the first Muslim-American woman elected to the Michigan House. Narrated by Alfre Woodard.
