R/GA, Director Natasha Lyonne Show Why Gender Equality “Can’t Wait”

This campaign for Melinda Gates’ Pivotal Ventures was inspired by a recent World Economic Forum blog post, which projected that, at the current pace of change, it will take the United States another 208 years to achieve gender equality.

Created in partnership with R/GA Chicago, this “Equality Can’t Wait” campaign kicked off with a video series that explains why 208 more years of inequality is “No Joke.” With actor Natasha Lyonne directing, several high-profile comedians (including Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, Carol Burnett, Uzo Aduba, Ilana Glazer, John Mulaney, and others) joined in the effort to urge people to action and draw greater attention to the need for gender equality in our lifetime.

AMY BERG is part of the Sundance Festival Program.

The Women’s March mobilized millions of women to protest after the inauguration of President Trump. But working across ideologies to combat injustice has its challenges. Academy Award–nominated director Amy Berg returns to the Sundance Film Festival with an insider look at the struggle for intersectional activism among the Women’s March leadership.
Berg captures the collaborative organizing process and hopeful energy of the first marches in 2017 and spends time behind the scenes highlighting the sustained work that happens after the crowds subside. For Women’s March co-president Tamika Mallory and community-organizing leader Erika Andiola, the march is only the tip of the iceberg of their broader activism—Andiola championing immigration rights and Mallory protesting gun violence. When Mallory comes under fire for her affiliations with Minister Louis Farrakhan, a powerful conversation between Mallory and Rabbi Rachel Timoner opens up a dialogue about intersectional leadership.
In light of the recent controversy around four of the Women’s March leaders, including Mallory, Berg’s film offers a timely springboard for a discussion on issues that have plagued the women’s movement for a century.
