My New Favourite Website

I officially know what is going to be consuming hours of my life from now on: MAKERS.com

This website features the stories of some of the most influential women in America. Every groundbreaking woman that you have, (and many that you haven’t) heard of has an interview on this site. They talk about not only the accomplishments which have made them acclaimed but also their personal stories, their opinions and their inspirations. The first day I found this site I watched interviews with Erin Brockovich, Ruth Westheimer and one of the first female NYC firefighters, Brenda Berkman. There are woman who work in every field you could imagine. Every age, race, religion are represented. This project by AOL and PBS is one of the most inspiring things I have seen in a while. I am officially addicted and you should be too.

February 26th also marks the official launch of the Makers TV show! Check out the trailer for the show below (I’ll admit it’s a little dramatic) and then head over to the website and be overwhelmed by the number of phenomenal women who are a part of this project. So interesting to hear their stories.
