Brought to you by The Center for Investigative Reporting, this documentary series features the work of four female filmmakers who have produced films about women taking control, taking power and taking chances.

Voting Matters, 26 minutes
A Film by Dawn Porter

In the wake of a key part of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 being struck down, several states immediately attempted to pass laws that restricted voter rights. Twenty-three currently have stricter limits. This film follows civil rights attorney Donita Judge, who is fighting on the ground and in the courts to ensure that the right to vote is protected, especially among people of color.



A Film by Ann Shin

Explores the career of controversial spy Rita Katz and how fear and terror play out in our society within the context of the multibillion-dollar counterterrorism industry.



Freedom Fighters, 33 minutes
A Film by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy

Follows three women – a women's rights activist, a police officer in an antiterrorism unit and a labor rights activist – as they speak out against inequality and push for equal rights in Pakistan.



Nellie Bly Makes the News, 23 minutes
A Film by Penny Lane

At a time when women were not allowed the right to vote, Nellie Bly changed the game for women in journalism by refusing to accept the role society tried to press upon her.
