If you haven't seen this yet, drop what you're doing and check it out: Makers is a digital video showcase of thousands of compelling stories - both known and unknown - from trailblazing women of today and tomorrow. The first series ran in 2013 and featured interviews with women from all walks of life including Hillary Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, Madeleine Albright, Carol Burnett, Condoleezza Rice, Phyllis Schlafly, and women who appear on Forbes Most Powerful Women list. David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle called the documentary "one of the best and most far-reaching films about the modern women's movement."

The 2014 installment of the series is out and we're so proud that Jane Pratt of xoJane is among the women chosen in the 'Groundbreakers' category - women who are firsts in their fields, visionary role models or frontline activists who sparked, and some who opposed, change for women.

In this interview, Jane Pratt talks about being the founding editor of the groundbreaking Sassy magazine at age 24, the backlash that led to its demise, and how through the media she's created since, she can provide a platform for women's voices.

It's a great interview – catch the video highlights below or watch the full interview here.
