MAKERS is the largest collection of women’s stories ever assembled. Launched in 2012 by AOL, MAKERS is a women’s leadership platform that encompasses broadcast documentaries, web and mobile-first video content, and live events. MAKERS.com features over 3,000 videos and the stories of more than 300 women, and with their latest release, “Once and For All,” they are looking to break records digitally to recreate the largest gathering of women, virtually.
MAKERS has enacted change for women and provided a place for their stories since inception, but today they are celebrating the launch of MAKERS: Once and for All, AOL’s first feature film that documents the story of the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing — the largest gathering of women to date — where Hillary Clinton first demanded that women’s rights be universally recognized as human rights.
In celebration of the film, MAKERS is hoping to recreate the largest gathering of women, “virtually,” and drive them to take action on behalf of women’s rights. There are 5 ways you can get involved in a part of women’s history.
