LOS ANGELES, CA — February 11, 2020 — Today, on The 2020 MAKERS Conference stage in Los Angeles, MAKERS, Verizon Media’s brand dedicated to accelerating the women’s movement is announcing NOT DONE -- a new documentary, presented by MAKERS and Verizon and supported by P&G -- marking the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote. NOT DONE, debuting this summer, will expand upon the critically acclaimed PBS documentary series MAKERS: Women Who Make America, examining how feminist changemakers of today are carrying the torch and making real progress toward true equality.

The hour-long film, which airs on PBS June 30 at 8pm ET as part of its summer-long celebration of female trailblazers in honor of the women’s vote centennial, will survey the landscape of today’s multifaceted women’s movement, intercutting powerful contemporary archive and compelling interviews with activists, writers, celebrities, athletes, and politicians to bring these stories to life and connect the dots between the past and the present moment of transformation.

The documentary will feature conversations, stories, and insights from today’s most exceptional women (and male allies), including: actor and writer Michael Ian Black; founder, Me Too Movement, Tarana Burke; attorney and professor Kimberlé Crenshaw; co-founder, Black Lives Matter Global Network, Patrisse Cullors; CAA agent Maha Dakhil; actress, director, and producer America Ferrera; co-founder, Black Lives Matter Global Network, Alicia Garza; writer Roxane Gay; teenage climate activist Tokata Iron Eyes; journalist Jodi Kantor; attorney Roberta Kaplan; television executive Katie McGrath; Olympic runner and activist Alysia Montaño; entrepreneur and parental leave advocate Alexis Ohanian; Academy Award-winning actress, director, and producer Natalie Portman; writer and executive producer Shonda Rhimes; actress and activist MJ Rodriguez; co-chair, The Women’s March, Linda Sarsour; attorney Nina Shaw; writer and director Jill Soloway; feminist icon Gloria Steinem; journalist Kara Swisher; president and CEO, TIME’S UP, Tina Tchen; journalist and author Rebecca Traister; journalist Megan Twohey; and freshman congresswoman Lauren Underwood (D-IL).

Executive produced by Emmy-winning filmmaker and MAKERS founder/executive producer Dyllan McGee, produced by Alexandra Moss, and marking the directorial debut of Sara Wolitzky, NOT DONE was created by an all-female and non-binary production crew.

“We are inspired by a new generation of truth-speaking, politically active women that are changing norms and fighting with an intersectional perspective,” said Dyllan McGee, MAKERS founder and NOT DONE executive producer. “We are hopeful NOT DONE will galvanize others to join them in this reignited women’s movement and continue to move the needle toward equality, as MAKERS has done since its inception.”

"Not only is NOT DONE a purposeful look at where we are in the women's movement, how far we've come and where we need to go, but it is being created by an all-female and non-binary production team," said Diego Scotti, Chief Marketing Officer, Verizon. "Having this team behind the camera ensures accurate representation on screen. We're proud to champion Dyllan and her team as they further these stories and this important narrative." 

“NOT DONE will be a powerful film that shines a light on the progress made to advance gender and intersectional equality, but it’s clear we are not done yet,” said Marc Pritchard, P&G Chief Brand Officer. “P&G proudly supports the documentary to tell the stories of these inspiring change agents, and we will continue to use our voice and invest our resources in women-led platforms like MAKERS to create a more intersectional and inclusive creative supply chain.”

“From the people who fought for the ratification of the 19th Amendment to present-day changemakers, we are excited to share the inspiring stories of trailblazing women who have shaped the course of history,” said Paula Kerger, PBS President and CEO.

Presented by MAKERS and Verizon, NOT DONE -- a film by McGee Media -- is supported by P&G and its Secret brand.

NOT DONE is the first recipient of Verizon’s Future Fund, a $5 million commitment to support new and emerging female talent across entertainment and technology.
