The PBS documentary Makers: Women Who Make America (airing on February 26th) shares the stories of exceptional women who have made pioneering contributions that continue to shape the world in which we live.  Through the perspectives of those who lived through historic milestones, the film recounts the seminal events in the Women’s Movement, including the publication of The Feminine Mystique in 1963 and the battles to end discriminatory laws and practices over the following decade, while also telling the surprising and unknown stories of women who broke barriers in their own chosen fields.

During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, groundbreaking writer, lecturer, editor and activist Gloria Steinem, who has been looked to as the popular face of the women’s movement for over four decades, talked about what it means to her to be a part of this documentary, when she started to realize that what she was saying and doing was really impacting a larger collective, how difficult it was for her to get comfortable with public speaking, the surprise success of Ms. Magazine (which she co-founded), the most inspiring women today, and where she sees women now, in the bigger picture.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.
