For as long as conflicts have taken place around the world, women have been involved. As military nurses, in communications, as munitions experts and many other roles. But often the contributions of women in wartime are overshadowed by the achievements of men.
In its latest offering, the PBS documentary series, "Makers" examines the military and its female trailblazers in "Women in War". The film is directed by Rachel Grady. Her previous works include "Jesus Camp" and "Freakonomics."
