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, Not Done: Women Remaking America shines a light on the next generation of feminists who are unafraid to take on complex problems and are leading the way to true equality.

A few highlights include: the behind-the-scenes story of the intersectional organizing that birthed the 2017 Women’s March, told by co-chair Linda Sarsour; NY Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey giving the play-by-play of how they helped bring down Harvey Weinstein; America Ferrera, Shonda Rhimes, Natalie Portman, Jill Soloway, Tina Tchen, and Mónica Ramírez sharing the never-before-told inside story behind Time’s Up; Black Lives Matter co-founders Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors on the birth of the first social media movement and how it paved the way for a convergence of feminism and racial justice.

We are living in a vastly different world than we were in 2013. While we can’t deny how strong the forces of sexism and racism remain, that awareness has galvanized a new generation of politically active, truth-speaking, change-making women who have already changed our norms and will continue to fight – intersectionally – to bring us ever closer to equality.
