Women Remaking America: The Women’s Movement, as Told by Those Who Live It

NOT DONE: Women Remaking America chronicles the seismic eruption of women’s organizing from the 2016 election through today, and the intersectional fight for equality that has now gone mainstream. 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. 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.
