About the film:
Winner of Best of Fest, Best Documentary, Best Director at Freedom Festival International.
A celebration of American democracy and the power of women, hope and resistance in modern American politics. Follow a diverse group of patriots as they fight for social justice on the streets and in the halls of power.
The film captures the initial years of the peaceful and historic female resistance that led from the January 21, 2016, Women’s March in Washington, D.C., to the groundbreaking 2018 mid-term election putting a record number of women into the U.S. Congress.

After returning to the Washington, D.C. metro area, she founded Unshakable Productions working primarily with schools and nonprofits.
