While they may raise children, cook, clean and honor their spouses, the women celebrated in the PBS-AOL collaboration “Makers” are the daring ones who ventured out of the house to lead the women’s liberation movement, who broke barriers and became emblems in the fight for equality. “Makers: Women Who Make America” is a broadcast and digital effort, already online and premiering as a three-hour documentary narrated by Meryl Streep on PBS on Feb. 26. Bra burning? Yes, that’s part of the story, along with Supreme Court appointments, the first female astronaut, anchorwomen, congresswomen, corporate executives, coal miners, Boston marathoners and more. From the victory of Roe v. Wade to the defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment, from consciousness-raising about advertising imagery to the admission of women in sports, it has been a long, not always winning slog. The complete article on the documentary can be read here.

Meryl’s full appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” has been added to the image library. I haven’t seen this show before, but it was fun seeing Meryl doint an interview that didn’t feature the standard questions. She talked and joked about her co-stars, reviewed some of her past films and of course promoted “Hope Springs”. This is definately worth a watch. Captures from the interview have been added to the photo gallery as well, check the previews below.

Since “Watch What Happens Live” has been the last talkshow appearance to promote the release of “Hope Springs”, why not rewind her latest appearances – there’s a collection of all “Hope Springs” related talkshows on the sidebar with links to full videos, captures and comments. Enjoy.

Press release courtesy CBS: “Doint New York City’s “Shakespeare in the Park” is special”, actor Kevin Kline tells “CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood”. “It’s an institution,” Sam Waterston tells Tracy Smith. If all the world’s a stage, as William Shakespeare once noted, then New York City’s Delecorte Theater might be a little better than others. For five decades, Central Park has been home to free summer performances of Shakespeare classics under the stars, and as correspondent Tracy Smith reports, actors say the work is magical. “It is an institution, but still remains true to its original purpose, which was the best playwright in the English language for free, for everybody who wants to come,” actor Sam Waterston tells Smith of “Shakespeare in the Park.” The production has attracted some of the entertainment world’s biggest names to the outdoor stage and helped launched the careers of others. To get a sense of the magic launched in 1962 by the late theater producer Joe Papp, Smith talks to Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, Amy Adams, James Earl Jones, Waterston and others. Smith’s piece will air August 12 on “CBS Sunday Morming with Charloes Osgood” (9:00-10:30 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
