Represent: “Local elections in Middle America are not often fodder for national news coverage. While 24-hour news cycles keep us focused on national partisan battles, there are multilayered, interpersonal dynamics at play in local elections that mirror–and sometimes predict–the ebb and flow of America’s large scale political landscape,” reads a description from PBS about this doc. “Leading up to the 2018 midterm elections in the heart of the Midwest, three women take on entrenched local political networks in their fight to reshape politics on their own terms.” 10 p.m. ET on PBS

“Not Done: Women Remaking America, a MAKERS film by Verizon Media and McGee Media, and proudly supported by P&G, 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.”
