This week's profiles on MAKERS.com, which showcases hundreds of compelling stories from the women who make America, feature two women who chronicle life -- one through humor and the other through hard news. In video profiles, find out what inspired Cathy Guisewite, who created the comic strip "Cathy," and what drives Christiane Amanpour, international war correspondent and anchor.
Guisewite created the comic strip "Cathy," which explored issues facing modern women caught between society's traditional expectations and new feminist ideals. The internationally syndicated strip ran from 1976 to 2010 and has been collected into more than 20 books and other publications. In 1992, Guisewite received a National Cartoonists Society Reuben Award for her work.
