Trailer | Not Done: Women Remaking America

Chart the last five years of the women’s movement and its re-energized, intersectional fight for equality. Activists, journalists, entertainers, athletes, and politicians report from the frontlines of the feminist tidal wave. Airing: 10/27/20

Like the movement it documents, this story is told collectively through the firsthand experiences and narratives of frontline activists, writers, celebrities, artists and politicians who are remaking culture, policy and most radically, our notions about gender.

The 2018 Midterm Elections

In the 2018 midterm elections, women - and specifically women of color - played a bigger role than they have in any other election in American history. Airing: 10/27/20

Premiering against the backdrop of an unprecedented pandemic and widespread social upheaval, the film looks back on recent milestones in the women’s movement, weaving together a story of major progress with the clear reality that our work is not done.
