Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

In addition to chronicling Hillary Rodham Clinton's Wellesley 25th class reunion this past June, this program draws on interviews with more several class members and uses photos, videos and biographical updates written for reunions over the past 25 years, to tell the story of this group of women who discovered almost overnight they were "pioneers." Women interviewed include: Betsy Griffith, headmistress of Madeira School for Girls; Martha Teichner, CBS news correspondent; Nancy Wanderer; Janet Hill and Francille Wilson, two of the six African-American women in the class; and Ann Sentilles.
