In this episode of MAKERS, follow the history of American women’s participation in war — from Vietnam to the present — as nurses, soldiers, journalists, diplomats and spies. Featured stories include those of Linda Bray (pictured left), the first woman to lead troops into battle, and Valerie Plame Wilson, whose career was sabotaged after she was “outed” as a high-level spy. MAKERS: Women in Warshares the stories of military leaders who have broken through gender barriers.
