Who inspires you?

PBS’s award-winning biography series “American Masters” is challenging us to think about the women who are pushing us to go beyond what is possible. The series continues to highlight creative, powerful women — from comedian Margaret Cho to playwright Suzan-Lori Parks— with its year-long online campaign, Inspiring Woman.

Using the hashtag #InspiringWomanPBS, “American Masters” asked the public to share their stories, too. So far, we’ve met Suzanne Eng’s grandmother, Ngun Moy Hum, who was “a liberated woman before it was fashionable,” and Anusheh Ansari, an Iranian American engineer.

Through January 2018, “American Masters” will introduce us to women who are making waves in their respective industries in a six-part web series called “Inspiring Woman.” Watch the trailer below.

Familiarize yourself with the women you’ll get to know when the “Inspiring Woman” web series kicks off Nov. 8.

Tracy Clayton is writer, humorist and the host of BuzzFeed’s award-winning podcast “Another Round,” which she co-hosts with Heben Nigatu. Clayton is a ball of energy on the podcast.

Chef Angie Mar is the executive chef and owner of the Beatrice Inn, a historic restaurant in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Before she began to cooking professionally at 28, Mar sold commercial real estate in Los Angeles for 10 years. She inspires us to start fresh, even when it’s risky. These days, Mar spends all her “waking hours thinking about meat,” and it has paid off: Food & Wine magazine named Mar one of its Best New Chefs in 2017. She won last year’s Chochon 555, an annual event in which chefs celebrate the heritage pig. In 2015, she conquered “Chopped: Grill Masters.”

Everything artist Molly Soda does lives online. Born in 1989, Soda saw the Internet grow as she did. Like many young women growing up in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Soda journaled openly online and took photos of herself before the word “selfie” entered popular vernacular. Her latest solo exhibition — called “thanks for the add!” — takes us back to the days of MySpace and AOL. The Brooklyn-based artist also recently co-authored the book “Pics or It Didn’t Happen: Images Banned from Instagram” with Arvida Bystrom. Soda inspires us to get nostalgic, find our old LiveJournals and embrace the Internet, even if it’s sometimes a harsh place.

Visual artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh

Premiere date: Jan. 17

In the fall of 2012, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh started “Stop Telling Women to Smile,” an international street art series that tackles gender-based street harassment. Fazlalizadeh is a Brooklyn-based illustrator and artist. Her work — often seen in public spaces — inspires us to reflect regularly. Take, for example, the street art campaign “When Women Disrupt.” Along with artist Jessica Sabogal and filmmaker Melinda James, Fazlalizadeh traveled through California, Arizona and New Mexico, installing posters that asked questions like, “What does it mean to be white in a society that was created to benefit you?”
