Karen Nussbaum, co-founder and executive director of Working America, will appear Tuesday night at 8 p.m. EST in the PBS premiere of the documentary "MAKERS: Women Who Make America." Working America is the fastest-growing organization for working families in the United States.

The documentary is narrated by actress Meryl Streep and examines the modern American women's movement through interviews and personal stories with the women who lived it. Nussbaum talks about the successes and failures of the women's movement, organizing on the job and pop culture moments like the movie "9 to 5" and Dolly Parton's famous song of the same name.
