Women's History Month
The future is female...and the present as we have seen in 2019 and 2020. Girls and women from all walks of life - science, sports, politics, and more - are challenging gender norms, pursuing parity, and achieving in spaces once considered unwelcome. This year, a presidential election year, we look at the 100 years since the passing of the 19th Amendment ("The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex") and the women who have individually, and as a collective, opened the doors for the next generations to make change of their own.
WORLD Channel celebrates these groundbreaking women, well-known and little-known, like Maya Angelou, Dolores Huerta, Leah Chase and Li Ling-Ai, whose works continue to impact society. Throughout March, we will share over 50 stories of women who have defied traditional social standards for the opportunity at equality - programs include AfroPoP, American Experience, American Masters, Independent Lens, POV, Reel South and WORLD exclusive series America ReFramed and Doc World.
