Meet 15 women who have created and defined contemporary American culture. The newest chapter of filmmaker/photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ List documentary series (American Masters: The Boomer List, The Black List, The Latino List, The Out List) features intimate interviews with:

Madeleine Albright, U.S. Secretary of State, 1997-2001

Gloria Allred, lawyer

Laurie Anderson, artist

Sara Blakely, entrepreneur

Margaret Cho, comedian

Edie Falco, actor

Alicia Keys, singer-songwriter

Aimee Mullins, athlete and fashion model

Nancy Pelosi, politician

Rosie Perez, actor

Shonda Rhimes, writer-producer

American Masters: The Women’s List focuses on these individuals’ exceptional achievements, struggles and identities. All trailblazers in their respective fields, these women share their experiences struggling against discrimination and overcoming challenges to make their voices heard and their influence felt. Toni Morrison opens the film with a reading of an introduction she wrote specifically for The Women’s List.

“As a lifelong feminist, I’m proud to have made The Women’s List and excited to have another one of my films join the American Masters library,” said Greenfield-Sanders.

The monumental building that was supposed to last forever was destroyed after 53 years.
