Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This documentary, narrated by Julie Harris, surveys the many roles of women in American culture. From the home place to the work place, women have left their distinctive collective touch. The program uses archival film footage and photographs to capture women at work in the film industry, factories during the war years, in the arts and sciences, business, the professions, and athletics. Personal recollections and interviews with scholars round out this tribute to a woman's place in America.
