Lena Dunham has never been one to shy away when it comes to conversations about women’s reproductive rights. Although she has made some controversial remarks on the topic in the past, her new platform for change comes from an educational standpoint.
On Monday, Dunham released a short, animated documentary entitled 100 Years, in which she outlines the history of Planned Parenthood which recently celebrated it’s 100th birthday. She applauds its ground-breaking work, as well as calls out some flaws in it’s founder, while overall praising the organization’s mission.
Of course, such a female-forward piece came with some amazing collaborators. Meryl Streep, Mindy Kaling, Gina Rodriguez, and America Ferrera are just a few of the voices attached to this project with Dunham.
The full-length video can be found on the ‘NowThis Her’ Facebook page, the organization through which this short film was released. And at only 7 minutes long, there’s no excuse not to check it out!
