You may recognize Lisa Leslie's name from the back of her WNBA jersey or on the big-screen with Team USA at the Olympics. Today, however, Leslie is playing a new role: the latest woman to join MAKERS, a multiplatform video initiative that aims to become the largest collection of women's stories ever assembled. Leslie's induction as officially the 200th maker coincides with this year's Women's Equality Day (Monday, Aug. 26) — the day in 1920 when the 19th Amendment officially granted American women the right to vote. Leslie represents just one of many women who revolutionized their field and paved the way for those to follow in their footsteps, women like journalism icon Katie Couric, Academy Award-winning actress Rita Moreno, and the Hillary Rodham Clinton. Watch a video, exclusive to MC, below, and for more info, head to makers.com.
